    These are our first girls (we hope) and I am anxious to know if luck was on our side. We live in the city and can't have roosters. 2 worry me slightly, but I am trying to stay optimistic until I hear a crow ;)

    Here is Elsa our 3 week old Ameracauna (she is our sweetie pie)

    I hope the pictures are clear enough, they are quick and spunky little things ;)
    Can't wait to hear what you all think!

    They all look like hens to me! :) the only one I'm not 100 percent shure about is your Delaware. But she really looks way more like a hen. Hope this helps! :D

    They look like pullets to me, though it is too young to be certain.

    Nugget appears to be a cockerel, but the others look like pullets for now.

    Nugget is my biggest concern too, and Hope is my other maybe. My middle daughter and Nugget love each other so much so I am really hoping she is just a big early maturing girl, but my gut tells me that is not the case :(

    [​IMG] I think they all look like pullets. Though Nugget would be my biggest concern.[​IMG]

    I spotted some wattles this morning while we had Nugget out for morning play/cuddle time. I think our odds are not looking good :( Having six different breeds makes comparing more difficult, but I think we need to start preparing ourselves for the inevitable! (almost 4 week old Buff Orpington)
