    Can you help me sex these chicks? Also, if you think I'm wrong with their breed mix please tell me... I was told they were all "Ameraucana bantam mixes." I'm hoping they're all girls (urban neighborhood), but it's hard to tell because they are still peeping, although I've heard a timid chortle here and there. None really act like roosters, although Yawkey the BR is quite the ringleader. I do apologize for the poor quality of most of the pics. I'm not as good as my camera - it always gets the better of me.

    Here is Yawkey, my barred rock bantam mix:

    Elvis, a mille fleur/ameraucana bantam mix (feathered feet):

    Poppin, a mille fleur/ameraucana bantam mix (she has bluish, feathered feet):

    and finally, Henway, a ??? mix. She has bluish feet as well. Her comb is bigger than the rest, so I'm afraid she may be a he...however she doesn't act like a rooster AT ALL. Very timid, always following Yawkey around, etc.

    Thanks in advance for any help! [​IMG]

    Thanks, I thought so... I will be sad to let Henway go, I'm quite attached. I was hoping that because Henway is so quiet and timid (s)he'd be a hen. [​IMG]

    I have no idea. Just wanted to say, you have some really cool looking chickens.
    I have bantam mutts as well and they're great birds.
