    Willow? I am not experienced enough to know what that means.
    So cockerel/pullet? Wheaten/blue wheaten? Splash?
    Is it still too early to guess?

    Girl?! Awww sweet... "Baltadina" it is then. Lol.
    The kids decided it was Balto if a boy and StarWish if a girl... But we are so used to calling Balto, that name might stick. Lol

    Quote:Looks like our BW pullets from Denise looked at that age. As to willow or yellow? Ours were similar at that age and now at 14weeks they are very blue not "willow".

    Charlie (on the left) April hatch. I'm having trouble deciding if he is full Ameraucana or if he's an EE. He is with our girls now. He has purple and greenish hues to his feathers. His hackles have come in nicely and his comb is twice as big now.
    Moose was a March hatch. Guessing he is EE, since I can't find any pictures of colors that match. He's becoming not such a nice roo, so he will likely be dinner. He is a very pretty chicken though. He is gray with some brown splotches on his wings.

    I hatched a bunch from Denise and Wayne Meredith directly at the same time- they are a few months now and all have slate legs. Also I had some buffs that looked to have completely green legs at hatch, but sure don't now. Wouldn't worry about that [​IMG]
