    My husband and I are new to keeping chickens and are absolutely in LOVE!!! We got our chicks from a local hardware store and they are about 9 weeks old. One is a barred rock hen, one is a plymoth rock hen, the third we think is an ameracauna but am not sure. Can someone help identify our third. As far as gender, I am pretty sure they are all girls from what I can tell from this forum, as none of their combs are very big and are just starting to turn pink. Not sure about this one though as the pea comb is still barely there. Any help would be appreciated!

    Looks like you have an Easter Egger pullet there. =)

    My husband will be so excited! We love them all but this one, Fauna, is his favorite. I was really surprised at how sweet and loving they are! Thanks!

    Yes, looks like a pretty little girl! I have one that color, very pretty when they are full grown.

    She is very pretty, though she is an Easter Egger, not an Ameraucana. Lovely coloring.

    I agree, Easter Egger pullet.
