    Good morning all,
    I am so excited to be on this chicken journey! This is my first post on BYC, I am wondering if I could get some help on determining breed and gender of one of my chicks?
    This is an "assorted white" that I got from my local feed store...they get their chicks from a mail order hatchery. I have no idea what breed it is....He/She is now 7 weeks old...
    What do you experts think?

    Welcome to BYC!
    She's definitely a pullet. Looks like a Leghorn...?

    thank you, lightchick for taking a look and responding....pullet sounds good to me! [​IMG]
    leghorn was my guess...she is much smaller than all of my other 7 week olds...but my other breeds run larger in general (black australorp, salmon faverolle, silver laced wyandotte, buff orpington, barred plymouth rock, rhode island red and ameraucana--i think, but might be easter eggers...will be posting on those shortly, because I am thoroughly confused!---

    Sounds like you have a lovely assortment of breeds! If the 'ameraucana' was from a hatchery then it is most likely a Easter Egger. EE's are one of my favorites because you never know what it's going to end up looking like!

    Agreed. And the variety of egg color.

    Hi Lightchick...it's been pretty amazing just watching how much they have changed and grown in the last 7 weeks....i can't wait to see what they all look like as "grown ups".
    i posted photos of my "Ameraucanas" if you could take a look, I would be so interested in what you think....of course, I started a new thread and not certain how to get you there, because I am not quite certain how to navigate BYC yet....learning so many new things![​IMG]

    Actually, she lays blue eggs. LOL. EE's are a pain. I almost got rid of her because I was certain she was going to crow but instead she laid an egg.
