    Hi -- we are new to this BYC thing. We got our first little chicks back in June and now they are pretty big. Being so new, I am having a hard time determining the sex of our flock. I have attached pictures of each one of them and possibly you could help us out! Our flock has Emily, Sarah, June, Lavender, Pollock and Speedy. We were told they were Ameraucana but from all that I have read, most likely they are probably easter eggers? We haven't had any eggs yet -- they are only 5 months old, but soon right? Obviously our little kids named a few but we love our chickens and raising them a block from the ocean!! Any help for this newbie is greatly appreciated. Thank you!! [​IMG]

    Sourland is there a prize for her? Does she get a free car or vacation or anything? I didn't think so. Still all pullets sure beats all cockerels, as some poor souls have been getting.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens.
