    [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] We purchased these birds from Tractor Supply Store at first they were labled Ameraucanas Straight Run but they had customer complain saying the hens didn't produce the Easter Eggs so they were told to remove the sign. Were hoping we picked 4 females by doing the old wives tale trick but if not it will be Ok. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!!!!

    There are a lot of black breeds that looks similar as chicks. Based on their popularity, though, I'm leaning towards your chicks being Black Australorps.

    As for gender, I'd recommend posting some photos of them when they're about 8 weeks old. By then, we should be able to help sex them by appearance.
