    Hello [​IMG]

    I was going to post pictures of my chickens to try to get a little help on Breed & Gender but they are only 6 weeks old and I didn't know if that was old enough or if I should wait a little longer? According to the bins at TSC I got 2 Black Sex Links, 2 Bantams & 2 Ameraucanas ( I was told this is a fancy/ tricky way of saying Easter Egger? )

    Pictures have been added [​IMG]

    6 weeks should be old enough to guess, go ahead and add some pictures!

    These two are the one in question. They were in the bin labeled Ameraucanas ( I have been told these are EE ) The bright red combs are what are making me think Roo but from researching I have found a lot of pictures that make it look like that is normal for this breed. I see no waddles forming.

    Top one is Mary Poopins AKA Big Bird
