    Here are some updated pics of our chicks. They are 8-9 weeks (I think). Can anyone tell who are pullets and who are roos? We were watching them from afar this morning and someone was giving the most girly, cute crow! I don't know who it was [​IMG]

    sorry guys! I'm having trouble getting photos in my post!

    [​IMG] Ameraucana?
    [​IMG] Is this a blue wheaten ameraucana or blue laced red wyandotte?
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/98149_dscn1439.jpg This is our little runt. He should be about the same age but is growing much more slowly. He/she is also an ameraucana?
    [​IMG] This is our big girl, Bertha? (I hope) She's definitely is in charge. She is a maran
    [​IMG] A Salmon Favarolle

    I'll post pics of the rest a little later.

    These guys are so much fun to watch!! We love them!!


    Thanks for your guesses!

    [​IMG] Your chickens are very attractive! Except for that poor runty one, how odd that it is still so fuzzy at this age. I couldn't tell you what it is right not, except weird. Sorry. The others all seem to be rather boy-ish except for the Salmon Faverolle.

    At that age I look for redder & larger combs & wattles on boy birds. I also look for iridescent feathers in the tail area, and for the spiky saddle & hackle feathers to begin growing from the backs of their necks & the ends of their backs in front of their tails. You may have to part the feathers in those areas to look for those spiky feathers starting to grow. At that age, boy birds also grow more reluctant to relinquish control over the TV remote.
