    My chicks are 6 weeks old on Saturday and I have finally named them.. Can anyone tell what breed they are at this age?

    I purchased the fertile eggs from a local farm. I know one egg was Americauna fertilized by a R.I. rooster. Have no idea which chick that is, my guess would be Daisy.

    The other eggs could be R.I. red, Production red, and black sex link.


    I named one Joey, I'm thinking he might be a roo. What do you think? Am I right or is it still too early to tell?

    They look like hatchery RIR or production reds! :)

    X2 on hatchery RIRs or Production Reds. If they develop a lot of black feathers in the tail, they are RIRs. If not, they are Production Reds.

    All three? The reason I ask is because one of the eggs hatched was blue and I was told it was an Americauna.

    Thanks for the tip on the black tail feathers.

    What about Joey? Is he a roo?

    None of these 3 look like any Amaracanas I have ever seen, Joey looks to be a cockerel, and keep an eye on poppy too!

    Poppy?? Oh no, I don't want two roos!

    These are the eggs I hatched. I did lose one baby chick that was all black but I was told that was a Black sex link so I should still have the Ameracauna.

    I can almost guarantee that the Amaracana was the one that died! I'm sorry! :( none of your look like one
