    Breed ideas for these chicks? Wyandotte, Marans, Welsummer, and Ameraucana mixes

    Hi everyone! Okay so I know it’s impossible to pinpoint this batch of chicks’ specific breeds, but I’m curious if y’all have any ideas of parent breeds, potential feathering patterns, or what breeds might be the most prominent based on what the chick looks like right now. Obviously just for fun...

    First Egg Likely? Even in November?

    Hello all! My four girls are 22 weeks today received as day old chicks on 6/13. My Cuckoo Marans, Juillet, has become much more vocal this past week and is squatting when we go to pet her.

    Ameracauna (pure) x Welsummer

    Hey there!! Does anyone have an Ameracauna (my Roo is a Blue) and bred it with a Welsummer? I'm wondering if the chicks will have beards and muffs. Is that automatic or will some have it and some not? I'd love to see pics if y'all have this mix, please. ❤️

    14 1/2 week old welsummer pullets comb and wattle development difference

    I have 2 welsummer pullets (both 14 1/2 weeks old), one has a much brighter and larger comb and wattle than the other. She is also the loudest constantly bawking and bossing the flock around. Her size is the same as the rest of the flock. She’s not a sneaky roo, is she?

    We're new to Backyard chickens. :frowWe're getting our coop and everything ready at this time but no chickens yet, 5/2023. We live in a hot arid environment so dealing with heat and all the pests that come with that will be our biggest challenges. We had chickens once before for a few months...

    What breed is my 9 week old bantam?

    She was sold as a "Tried and True Bantam" at the farm store. We thought maybe a Welsummer bantam or some kind of Old English game? Not sure though. If anyone has any ideas they would be much appreciated! Thanks!
