    I have some 1 week old and 2 week old Anconas and they all look exactly the same are they very hard to sex. I also have some 1 week old Hamburgs are they easy to sex? I am more used to the heavy breeds.

    My Ancona started out with mostly white feathers... now look at her!

    I think she laid her first egg yesterday.. I have four white layers in the coop... the day I get four, I'll know she's paying for her keep.
