    Hey all! These babies are about two months old, except for the first one, who is three weeks older. I have some ideas, just need y'all to see if I'm right. I apologize for my funny faces... trying to hold a chicken and take a picture was hard!

    1: Uncle Sourland-NN-Boy

    2: Adi- OE-boy :( (please say it isn't so!!! But if it is... I'll keep her anyway. I have enough hens, but (s)he is my only Olive Egger!)

    3: Cheche- EE- girl!

    LOL... Is it a webcam or something? Why didn't you just point the camera at the chickens and take a picture? [​IMG]

    As far as gender I think your pretty close... I know silkies are hard to tell, and my Easter Eggers can sometimes "change" sexes on me as they get older...

    the iPad, actually. Mom took the other camera today. [​IMG]

    Yah. Hop is the one I'm most worried about for that sorta thing, but I'll survive it if he's a boy.

    I think your white leghorn is a hen. WL hens have large floppy combs when grown. WL are egg-laying fools. She will lay a large white egg every day for you starting at about 20-22 weeks.

    I agree with you on all of them except for the white leghorn. She looks like a female to me.

    If she was, that would be epic! I have another leghorn, and I love the breed.
