    Went to TSC for feed and, well, I failed. Fiance probably wont be too happy, but then again, he's sick in bed for now.
    All but one is straight run, so no idea if it will be a hen or roo. Hopefully, only one is a roo, rest girls, so I can keep them all!
    Two Silkies, a red layer pullet, 3 Americauna, 1 Plymouth.

    Really want to know what kind of red pullet the white with caramel stripes is.
    What are the 'americauna' ones; very pale with a hint of caramel around neck and one line down the center of its back. Black and brown. Chipmunk colored. As in, what will they look like as aduts or why are they different colors?

    From the top left to right, 3 rows.
    Red, americauna, silkie, americauna, americauna.
    White plymouth.
    Silkie.

    The red pullet will most likely be a red sex-link bred for egg laying.
    The Easter Eggers will turn out to be various colors.
    There's a thread on the forum where folks post pics of what their Easter Eggers turned out to be.
    They all start out chipmunk colored.
    Congratulations on your new babies!

    The hatchery told them they were Americauna, I read that chipmonk Ams turn out 'wild color'. What's a wild color Am?

    Nevermind, read that green legs is proof they are EEs.
    Still cant find the same chick colors, but oh well.
