ok these are my first Wheatens....I am seeing 4 hens 2 roos? They are 5-6 weeks old
OK, here are a few pictures of my girls. Are these EE's or Ameraucanas? Any advise is welcome! Thanks in advance! (I hope I do this right, it's my first time posting pictures!)''
Here is the clean-faced one with the grey legs
Here are the two fluffy ones with the blue legs.
They are all wheaten ameraucanas. Not really EEs, but they would be a cull from most breeding programs. Perfect for EEs or OES though!
Thanks! They are really sweet and my kids love 'em! I'll have to look up what wheaten Ameraucanas should look like. Thanks for the expertise! By the way, what does OES stand for? (I'm showing my "newness")
bet they love that yard with all that grass, pretty.
Quote:OE's - Olive Egger's.
Quote:Right- OE stands for olive egger. I meant to say that the clean-faced ones would be culls. The others are fine. Sometimes you have to use what you have though. If they are good in every other way and lay awesome blue eggs, you might want to work with them. It will require a lot of record keeping. But- you have the other girls that you could use and avoid all that.
(I'm the local breeder)
Looks like they are happy and WARM.
Quote:I swear- every chick that I don't sell as a day old turns out to be a roo. I think I have 20 lav roos right now, zero pullets.
Same here out of 18 chicks 10 ended up roos. Lucky I was able to rehome them all but now it's like starting all over again.
this is a "cull" wheaten ameraucana, cause she is clean shaven. also with a "cull" blue rock, she is too light. my first birds, love em.
I got these as backyard birds (culls) from great breeders, imho. who identified the birds as such to me and explained why they missed the SOP. I appreciate I met those 2 people when I started.
not to get off topic of ameraucanas with the culls, showing it takes good breeders (which I am not yet- newb here) alot to get it right, and I appreciate the work ethic and the eye ya'll have.
