    My newest baby Peanut is a little Ameracauna cross,but what could she be crossed with?
    That's another thing,she just turned 2 weeks and I know that's too young,but how do you tell the gender of an EE?
    She's the loudest little thing,but I think it's because I'm forced to keep her alone.She's handled daily though.
    A sweet chick,and I'm just wondering what she could be crossed with.She has orange shanks and I know that's not an EE trait.
    Thank you all! [​IMG]

    Heehee what a cutie! That little messy zoro face has to be part Wyandotte. Please keep posting pics as she grows, I'm really interested in seeing how it turns out!

    she reminds me of a 2 year old child.....she likes to cling on me and be annoying to get my attention.... [​IMG]

    Update on Peanut:
    She's now 3 weeks old,and not quite growing like I'd hoped!
    Just a slow developer I suppose,but so cute all the same!
    She never hushes up,and always loves to climb all over me and sit and relax sometimes.

    Wanted to bump with a new question.
    Would it be at all possible to now tell if she's definitely a pullet?
    I read the same article in Practical Poultry for about 3 hours trying to determine if I could sex her correctly from their methods.(obviously I'm horrible at it)
    She has a rose comb barely peeking out with one tiny ridge at the very top of it,and it's all still yellow.
    She's very active and pecks and flaps her wings at every single thing,including my very offended Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Holly.

    My mom was a freak about our 5 others right up to the point when they turned 7 weeks and still none were crowing.So she's off my back about them.
    But now she keeps saying that if Peanut is a roo then (s)he's gone for good and will likely be made into soup on the spot.(such a sensitive woman ain't she?)
    So I'd like to get some second opinions,because the woman who sold em Peanut said she was 'probably a girl' but wasn't sure.
    Please help!!! [​IMG]

    Aw, I'm sorry you're getting so much pressure about your cutie. So far there are no signs of roo-ness that I can see. However, 3 weeks is very early to tell, especially if you're fairly certain she's a mix. By week 5 you usually know for certain if you have a roo or not.

    I'll send good luck vibes your way![​IMG]

    Peanut is almost 4 weeks old,and still has so much fluff...
    Peanut's feathering so slowly and growing so slowly I am starting to think roo [​IMG]
    Apparently as long as I can keep him out of trouble I'll be allowed to keep a roo.
    Trouble?No,what everyone should be worried about is me trying to hatch the eggs he fertilizes [​IMG]
