    If you all don't mind, here are some pics - tell me what you think...

    Ameraucana/EE - honestly I'm not really sure how to tell the difference...

    RIR - although I've been told that they can't possibly be RIR because they're not red enough - who knows...

    They look like roos to me. Too red, too soon in the combs![​IMG]

    I forgot to mention that they were hatched on 12/19 so they are not even 5 weeks yet!

    Did you mean GLW instead of SLW (looks goldish/reddish to me)??? Hmmm...some of those little birds do have some rather evident comb development going on, don't they??? The 2nd photo doesn't look bad, but the rest are suspect to me. My orp girl is 18 weeks, and she only has about as much comb as that last pic...lol. How old are these chicks???

    ETA...oops. You posted age.

    Without a full body shot, I have a hard time telling. The 2nd pic liiks girly to me, though. I have no experience with RIRs, so I can't help you there.

    To me, the only fairly sure pullet is the #2 picture of the EE chick. (and it's still early to really be 100% certain) And you have a GLW, not SLW.

    Yes I meant GLW not SLW. I didn't even bother posting a pic of the SLW - I knew he was a roo since he was 2 weeks [​IMG]

    Ok here are full body shots of the only 3 that I'm not really sure about.

    thanks everyone!

    P.S. I'll comment on the freaskishly green legs on what is SUPPOSED to be a RIR... the lady I got them from says that often times, her RIR hens have green legs...
