Hopefully 3 pullets, but not sure!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have 3 nine week old hopefully pullets. One is a chocolate Orpington that I'm fairly sure is a pullet. The olive egger and blue ameraucana I'm not positive about. I don't know enough about all the different breeds and feather patterns to tell what is what. Any guesses are welcomed and I will report back when I know for sure!

Welcome to BYC! :welcome We're so glad you joined!

 

Yep, all appear to be pullets! :D They're so pretty. I have to say, it's rare that I see somebody who actually knows a true Ameraucana from an EE, and I commend you for it!:clap

Oh good! I got them from a breeder who I was pretty sure knew what they were doing. The olive egger and the ameraucana have been chest bumping and fluffing their hackles a lot so I was getting concerned! They must be establishing their pecking order. Miss Orpington must be at the bottom because she is never involved.

I got them all from a breeder who I was pretty sure knew what they were doing. I wasn't sure about the Ameraucana and the olive egger because they keep fluffing their hackles and bumping chests. Must be sorting out their pecking order.
