    We got our new babies at Southern States and we do not know how old they are. They are pretty feathered in thier wings and trying to flap/fly a bit. Most have tail feathers now, too.
    These pics are from a few days ago.

    The yellow is a BO
    But the others are supposed to be Araucana's, can anyone tell me if they really are? Or are they something else? What is this coloring called?

    Here are some pics of my babies with their babies! [​IMG] They named them all...
    Here is Worshipper our BO

    Here she is with Rose.our little fatty Ashley.


    Elizabeth pooing on my son [​IMG] We are really worried about this one. She is much bolder and dominant...if she is he, then... [​IMG]

    Ashley-our little fatty Ashley. she is younger (?downier, not as feathered?) but fatter than the others! And she is super lazy! Very docile and gentle. She is our favorite. and Longneck-another tiny one-not much tail or wing feathers yet. Both of them are slightly different than the rest. Darker, not as many feathers yet, and calmer. Their legs are more silver colored, too.

    For fun-here's the whole crew getting aquainted with a grassy dirt clod! LOL! And we had just cleaned the cage, too! [​IMG]

    The chicks that were sold to you as araucanas are actually easter eggers. We have 3 and love them. You can see pictures on our BYC page. I think your chicks are about 2 weeks old.

    Here are a couple of photos of our chicks at 2 - 2 1/2 weeks.


    This is one of our easter eggers (also 2-2 1/2 weeks). She just started laying last week and lays pretty green eggs.
