    Hi all!

    Newbie here... and to all of this! I have 2 week old Araucana or Ameraucana chicks and we are trying to guess what's what. We named them anyway- I guess we'll change them later [​IMG]. I have 3 black and 3 chipmunk marked. One black (Darcy) acts very rooster-ish. Really he's just a bully and noisy (but who knows!) All seemed to get wing feathers pretty equally, but not all with tail feathers and now I'm noticing the two smallest "twin chipmunk" pattern presumed girls are starting to show combs with no tail feathers. I have no clue what to make of this. The suspense is killing me! Any clues?

    I haven't seen any pink, but these pics are not the best... they're camera shy. I saw someone else's photos of what looks like a roo... hopefully I can tell when one of them does show some pink!

    The guessing makes me want to learn how to sex by vent. I'm pretty good with kittens [​IMG]!
