    Hello!
    We have successfully hatched our first three Araucana x Polish chicks. Our Silkies sat on them. Can someone please give some opinion on sex. The Grey one is far more polish crest-wise but the beak is very Araucana. We are not sure about any of them

    Thanks

    NIce looking chickens! I was asking color because if the hen was the one who had the barring it would have made the chicks sexlinked. But that is not the case. The chicks are tough ones to sex.

    You should post pics again in a few weeks so we can see if there are any changes.
