    Hello,

    I would be pleased if you might help me with the breed of these cuties. Gender is much too early, but if you like...[​IMG]
    But for me, they are all girls. [​IMG]

    There should be Wyandotte, Araucana, EE and Maran chicks under these chicks. I wrote should because you never know. [​IMG]

    So here they are. For me they are perfect, and I fell instantly in love with them.


    Group one:

    Group two. I think the right one is a Maran.

    Group three. The pic does not suit them. They are so adorable. [​IMG]

  5. Hmmm....not seeing any Wyandottes in there. [​IMG] A few weeks should tell us breeds for sure!

    Thank you for your replies. Hm, i think the right one might be an Maran, but the left one, without feathers, could be an Australorp.
    I never had one, but i think if it is a nice hen, i can deal with that. [​IMG]

    Group one are probably Easter Eggers. Group two are likely Marans. Group three could be the Araucana and Wyandotte. What country do you live in? U.S. Araucana are very different from Araucana in other parts of the world.

    I am from Germany.
    But do you really think that both are Marans? Group two. The left chick has no feathers on its feet.

    Depends. How reputable was the source? And how well did they keep their breeds separated? They could all be mixed breeds if they came from hobbyist or backyard keeper.
