    about 2 months ago I hatched 7 chicks, late February, I hatched 23 more lol. I sold 3 and now I’m down to 20 burn im only going to be keeping 6. But here’s some pictures of them playing outside. The two little ones in the 2nd picture I bought last week and there called sapphire gems. They’re a mix between a Americauna and white leghorn.

    Awesome! Hope your enjoying them! I'm just personally wondering where you found that the sapphire gems are a amerucana/leghorn cross as they are a very new breed and people have been trying to figure them out. So just wondering where you got your information as those of us interested in the breed are trying to gather information!:jumpy

    It's a little hard to tell at this age but can you get head pictures?

    I say pic 4 is probably a cockerel.
    Possibly pic 1 as well
    Pic 2 is iffy but I would say the rest are pullets:)

    That black one with white on its face... might be a boy, based upon the size of that comb already.
