    Hey, I'm new to chickens and this site has been a godsend! We currently have 5 chicks, probably around 6 weeks old? Fuzzy on their hatch date. Thanks for all the wonderful advice so far!

    We have a Rhode island Red, a gold laced wyandotte, a barred rock, an australorp, and an ameraucana. Though we got them all from the local feed store not a breeder so the ameraucana is probably just an Easter egger. We had another Wyandotte but we lost it the first week :(

    Not to hurt your feelings, but it’s definitely an Easter Egger. Unless they’re specifically stating the colors of them, it’s even more likely that it’s an EE
     
  8. I'm sorry about your Wyandotte :hugs
    Best wishes on your chicken journey!!
    Would you mind posting any pictures of your chicks? It sounds like a beautifully mixed flock!

    Oh no hurt feelings! We weren't concerned with breed other than they could handle a Colorado winter
