    There's no such thing as an "Americauna" [​IMG] They are EasterEggers, mutt birds with a blue egglaying ancestor. Sold by hatcheries/feedstores as "Americanas"/Araucanas/Ameraucanas. They are not purebreds.Typically good tempered, good layers.

    I'm not good with chicks this young, but I'll give it a go.

    1) Girl
    2) Boy
    3) Not sure. Need a better pick of the face/comb, but I would TENTATIVELY guess girl.
    4) Boy. You won't know for sure whether these two are rocks or leghorns until they are of sexual maturity. If their combs are BIG, they are leghorns. If they are small, they are rocks.
    5) Can't tell.
    6) Girl.
    7) Can't tell. Silkies/mixes are HARD to sex.
    8) Not sure... need better pic of the face.

    Ya'll know that it is nearly impossible to determine the sex of a chick at this age. Unless you are looking at some bright pink comb, you won't know for sure until they lay an egg or crow

    Quote:Yes...BUT everyone gets SO excited about their new babies that they just can't wait, there are days and days of posts of people asking for their babies to be sexed brom birth to just before laying...It's just all good suspenseful fun!
