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!

a valley; by a brook.
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.

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!

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.
