    Here's another round of "please help me figure out what to do with my brood"![​IMG]

    Papa is a game mix, moms are a variety of purebreeds.

    Chicks are about 10 weeks.

    #1 Ha, ha...not sure. I think the mom was an Ameraucana...
    #2 Mama is a white leghorn
    #3 RIR mom---COCKEREL all the way, right??
    #4 Mama another white leghorn

    Thanks in advance....this is fun!

    I'm guessing roo, pullet, roo, pullet. Are you sure the 3rd one is a RIR mix? He looks like he has a beard and muffs, I'm thinking mom was an Easter egger.

    Definitely no Ameraucana behind any of those, but there is Easter Egger behind the definite boy.

    Yes, totally possible on the EE/Ameraucana (which is what they told me when I bought them) instead of a RIR.

    roo,hen,roo,roo...i think they are all ee's since most ee's are nothing but mutts, although they seem to be the preatiest.

    I agree with you that the 2nd and last ones probably had a Leghorn mom. They look quite similar to my California Whites which are a Leghorn cross (pure production birds). I've got one with yellow legs and two with blue legs.
