Feed store said Americauna. So Easter Egger?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The girl said they were Americana pullets. And that they were a week old. I think they were 2 weeks old when I got them. Which would make them 4.5 weeks now. They don't look the same. One doesn't have a beard. And one is a little bolder and less timid and also has a slightly larger comb. Please for the love of God not another roo!!!!!

Can anyone tell their breeds??




Here's pictures from the day I got them.

Looks like all Easter Eggers. Too young to be certain of gender but nobody is screaming cockerel.

200 something birds. 8 species. ♥ Norman ♥ Norma ♥ Misha ♥ and ♥ Taylor ♥ are my babies.

Oooh! Fingers crossed!!! And good! I got them home and saw that one had the beard puff and one didn't so I was a little bummed. They were also mixed in with silver laced wyondettes.

I had two smooth faced Easter Eggers and 3 puffy faced ones.  We lost beautiful Pearly-girl to a freak accident when she was about 9 months old or so.  We still have Dumb Daphne the Flock Complainer.  What a character!  She thinks she's a rooster, and she's a good rooster, too!  She's always on alert, always squawking her warnings, always scolding the other chickens.  She hasn't laid an egg since December 2014, following a hard molt, and I'm not even sure why she's still out there and wasn't a meal long ago.  

 

I have such a soft spot for Easter Eggers!  Personable, pretty, and lovely eggs.  (Well, except for Dumb Daphne the Flock Complainer, although she started out laying pretty eggs!)  I see pullet in both of yours, as the others have said, but I also thought our Scout was a pullet until he was around 4 months old.  So pictures in a few more weeks might not be out of line.....
