    When I bought these I was told I have 2 Americanas, 2 buff orpingtons and 2 rhode island reds. What do you think?

    Rhode Island Red, Buff orpington(possible roo) and Americana

    For some reason it won't let me upload the other pictures even though they are the same format. So for now this is all I have.

    That looks good to me... but I'm always iffy on whether or not they're really selling Amaraucanas and not Easter Eggers.

    Your RIR and Orpington look good, though!

    Quote:What is the difference between Americana and EE? We really want the ones that lay colorful eggs. The EE or Americana both of them have very cute fluffy cheeks. They are changing as they mature so it's harder to see the fluffy cheeks but they are still there. Sooo cute. I can't believe I got the chicken fever. I've never thought much about chickens before [​IMG]

    I posted better pictures of the BO under what breed is this. So far most say they think it's a Cockeral. It has thicker legs than the rest and the comb is bigger than the other BO even though the other BO is bigger than this one. It's also more squawky and nervous when we try and pick it up compared to the others. But such a cutie. More bold about pecking things out of my hands than the others even though it's shyer about being held.

    I wished I could post the other pictures of my chicks but for some reason it won't let me. I'll try again.
