    I just got actually 5 pullets from a lady who raises chickens up the road and they are beautiful! I think the will turn out nice as the rooster that is their dad was an Aracauna. The hen (mother) was a golden comet (red sex-link)...the babies are all buff color and one is solid white, and I am almost positive all pullets, with green leggs. Will they all lay blue or green eggs-i.e., is that a dominant trait that will carry through? I think this should be a good cross...

    Anyone had a cross like this before??

    Here are some pics of the new babies:

    First, a group shot-all but the black and white one are pullets (I think)

    Our new boy and little white girl-Ladybug which my daughter named her because she likes going after bugs:

    Our little pretty girl (yet to be named):

    And another little girl (yet to be named):

    And finally, girl #5-Cally because she reminds us of calico (she is the one on the right):

    These are all pullets, right (except for the black and white one), what is he??

    Thanks for looking!

    I am no authority on the matter, but my guess on the roo would be a barred rock.

    They all look like cross breeds. If the father was a proper araucana they all ought to lay blue or green eggs. The black & white bird looks like he's related to a laced bird.
     
  5. The black and white chick looks like my Silver Laced Wyandottes, but lighter. How old are they? And are you sure HE isn't a SHE? He's got a nice red color on the comb, but its small and where are his wattles?

    Oh, and I'm a bit of a chicken noob, so there is a 100% chance that I am WAAAAAAY wrong!

    silver laced wyandotte was my other choice- I cheated and looke on the mcmurry hatchery site to see what chooks had the black and white checkering.

    I'm pretty sure he is a he-he was sparring with our other young roo...it was actually kinda crazy, within 2 minutes of introducing them, they sparred. None of the rest have done that. Someone on here thinks he might be part polish.
