So I recently started with a mixed breed of chicks,in size and age, 2 black Marans, 2 RIR, 1 Frizzle, 3 Silkies and 3 bearded Ameraucanas, or so I think. But being new to this and in a no rooster area Im wondering what your guesses are on my chicks. Since my kids are fairly attached to the chicks at this point I am hoping to have a best guess so i can prep them sooner than later. Thanks for your thoughts!
Chick 1 Black Maran, Queenie we hope, Im guessing going on 4 weeks based on her feathering
Chick #2, Also Maran, Henrietta I think is going on 3 weeks but its hard to tell.
Chick 3, RIR, TigerLily (very curious bird and shy), age?
Chick 3 is Bessy she is large and in charge, but loves to be held and loved. (RIR, age?)
Chick #5 Liberty Ameraucana, Age?
Chick #6 Dixie, Ameraucana, Age?
Chick #7 Poppy, the smallest and Im guessing youngest Ameraucana
Okay so while I know sexing silkies is impossible until they are older Im wondering if anybody would guess if these are silkie mixes. Chick#1 has gray skin and Chick#2 has wings that are feathering a little more out like a frizzle.
