Just an update if anyone is interested. Got a very unusual-colored chick that is supposed to be black here, but that comes from his grandmother's side of the family. She was blue, but more of what you might call a breeder cull, so she passed on a "wild gene" to her grandson here. The other two seem the color they're supposed to be, though. Three black Ameraucanas, one Blue Orpington and one Black Orpington, both of the Orps are boys. Naturally. These two are both from Velvet and Suede. Then my Barred Rock babies, Gabriel and his sister. The 4 wk olds are at the really scruffy stage. I think the little Ameraucana in the second pic is a cockerel, but not quite sure yet. The tiny Ameraucana, who refused to have its picture taken tonight, seems to me to be a pullet.
