    These are my 7 week old babies. Do they look like girls to you guys? My first time as a chicken mom.

    I'd say that the chicks in photos 1, 2, 4, & 5 are definitely pullets, can't be sure about photo 3. What breed is that?

    I question #3 also. She (?) just started getting those puffy feathers around the face and neck about a week ago. She was purchased as an "americana", but I'm told they're also called EE's.

    They all look like girls to me. But I have only been at this for three years now. I have been right with my flock at that age.
    Have fun and welcome to the coop.[​IMG]

    Quote:Pure bred Araucana's have those head tufts and no tail at all, looks like yours has a lot of Araucana blood in it. I think the reason many people don't keep Araucanas is because their egg production is something like 2-3 per week, while a Araucana cross can produce colored eggs at a much higher rate.
