Here we go:

Yeah, that collar does throw things off just a bit, lol... looks a little shallow in the keel for my tastes...

Nora... lol... I won't share my coffee... wink.png

I am hoping that someone can tell me if the two on the right in the first photo (same two also in the second photo) are Ameraucanas, EEs or one of each.. That's how they were sold to me by Agway. I also have 4 NH Reds (like the one that jumped into the first photo.) The yellowish one does not have red on her wing. I think it s just some kind of reflection in the photo. She has the "fluffy neck", the black one does not. They both have the slate colored legs. All my chickens are approx 13 weeks old. As you can probably tell I am new at this. Thnx.

Those are EE are they laying yet? They are both very pretty birds the buff colored one is more EE typey the other is a mix but not sure if it's Ameraucana cross it doesn't have the beard/muffs etc. wondering if they had started laying green/bluish eggs?

Very pretty EE's... I actually really like the dark colored one... seen many that coloring coming out of hatcheries/feed stores this year beard and muffless... still an EE though, should give you some pretty colored eggs... smile.png

THAT'S what it was!! I knew there was something about him that looked a little off to me. Thanks for pointing that out.
And about Nora: I was NOT sharing, SHE was stealing, lol.
Oh, and p.s. Hugo is gonna be a daddy for the first time right around New Years...got some SLW eggs in the bator that he fertilized. It's also my first hatch! I hope he makes me some cute little OE babies!

I have a pair of Self Blues with similar keels... hoping to fix that this coming year, so will see...

Yeah, I would hide my coffee! gig.gif

Saw your post on the NYD HAL, can't wait to see Hugo babies! smile.png

I KNOW!! I hope they're half as cute and sweet as he is! I'm super excited, even though I feel like such a newbie because I can't see hardly anything in my eggs. I'm really looking forward to actually being able to see if they're developing. I really want some OEs!!!

On the keel end of things (lol) I'm really hoping that my blue wheaten girl, Calliope, who I plan on breeding Hugo to, will have a nice deep keel when she matures (she's only 15 weeks atm). She's got  a wonderful dark blue on her tail that I'm really excited about, and hopefully I can get a nice blue wheaten boy out of them to breed to her and any other blue wheatens I get this year. I've been dying for a splash wheaten cockerel, because I just adore their coloring, but that's gonna have to wait at least another year :( But hopefully I'll finally have my blue wheaten boy; I have had TWO blue wheaten boys already...one that I had to give back to the breeder because I couldn't have cockerels at the time, and the other (my beautiful and sweet D'Artagnon) got eaten by a raccoon (THROUGH CHICKEN WIRE! His FIRST NIGHT in the big boy coop! :hit) I'm hoping I finally get one that gets to stay!!! :fl I'm totally addicted to breeding, incubating, and hatching already, and I haven't even seen my first chicks yet! Whoo!! So much fun!!

Here's one of my girls at 2.5 months old. She's a splash wheaten Ameracauna.
I think she's going to be beautiful.
