Reason #3751 of why chickens are funny AKA it is hard to take close ups of chickens!
This is the one I think may be male...?? (can try and take closer pictures but s/he is more squirrely than the others)
S/he took much longer to get feathers, especially tail feathers than the others. Got the beginnings of wattles earlier and has more of a pinkish tinge to his/hers than others. S/he is more pushy and more upset if one of the other birds is missing/on someone's lap or has been carried out.
Male or female? I think they are ?7? weeks old except the larger Ameraucana, I think she is two weeks older..??
This is Matilda -- I think S/he just took a dustbath, not her most flattering picture. Very quick to come running when I call and loves to perch on someone's arm but pecks really hard! She used to be called pocky because she liked to sit in my husband's shirt pocket.
This is Lydia, she is quieter than the others, she is the oldest, was dominant, not so much any more. Last to come looking for treats
This is Hazel of the out of focus selfie at the beginning. Lovely bird. Really hope you all think she is female because she is pretty and sweet tempered and very interested in treats but does not peck hard.
