Any ideas on the color of this chick? MIL was told they were ameraucanas when she bought them. I am leaning toward pretty EE mix. I have two similar. This one and one that has more dove grey color mixed in. These are close to 7 wks old now. How do I tell the sex on this breed type. I am so used to opingtons and australorps! I am at a loss with chicks she has been buying for me. LOL Sorry about the fence in the second pic. I also have one that is a light soft grey with darker barring.
Someone on the Ameraucana thread said you can sex EE's by their color, she said they talk about it on the EE thread. I have an EE hen the exact same color as that one so I'm going to say girl haha!
I have signed permissions slips from the momma cats, and the photographs were for identification purposes only. You must be thinking about legislation that governs photographing domestic cats. The Sphynx cat, which is hairless, can never be photographed without scandal.
That is wrong in so many ways that can't even begin to be counted. I want to unsee this picture
roflmao!!! Somebody needs to warn him, he can't control himself without help lol
looking at weather reports, am trying not to think i need to move all the chickens in! as it is i bave my bantam favs in the studio and the cochins kids in the spare tub, so i don't know where i'd put the others! sheesh!
first time they saw popcorn, they were sure it would hop up and eat them!
but if there is a broody, she'll show what popcorn is for!!
What kind is that 1st picture? They look like Cochin mixes and I so love Cochin mixes.
Those are the Bantam Favs in the 2nd picture? Oh how adorable!
Storms seemed to be done in my parts for the night. We made out with a little bit of hail, lots of wind & rain. Dont think it was too bad, but won't know for sure until the sun comes up.
The German Shepard DH brought home is 100% a house dog. She didn't even give the baby chicks a second glance & is in DD room asleep on the trundle bed. Not sure she is the type of farm dog we need! The boys are outside chasing varmints & barking up a storm while she is happily sleeping the night away.
Storms are suppose to be worse tomorrow night, if so our time at the auction may be short & sweet. I hate driving in the pouring rain. Bad enough I can hardly see in the dark, add pouring rain & then I just hope my van knows the way home.
Maybe you got lucky with her!
I had to share this pic. This is what my arm looked like after shooting 100 rounds through my 870 shotgun during range qualification. The bruise got much worse over the next couple of days going all the way around my arm. I learned that holding a shotgun in the wrong way is a SELF correcting problem!!
Dang! My husband would be impressed. His measure of a woman is how well she can shoot haha!
