    These girls are supposedly 3 weeks old, though given their feathering I would guess a week or two older. The feathers were a bit ratty since they were over-crowded as well as being in with Guinea hens. Two of them have slightly puffy cheeks (nothing like my real Ameracauna chicks who looked like little chipmunks), the others more of a sleep look. I don't know if it is the awkward gawky age or what, but they look like road runners to me.

    I am wondering if these girls (I hope they are girls!?) might have some other breed(s) in them? The feed store people did not seem to be much help; I probably shouldn't have bought them, but I couldn't help myself. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Here are some random photos, let me know if I need to get any special angles etc.

    They look like Golden Campines to me. Can you tell if they have single combs or pea combs?

    Oh wow, they definitely look a lot like the Golden Campine chicks at the bottom of the page of this page at Feathersite http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGA/Camp/BRKCampine.html. And that would explain the high set tails! Hard to tell at this age, but they look like pea combs. Maybe an EE/Campine mix?

    They look like pretty typical Easter Eggers to me.
