    Hi, I am new to raising chickens and have 4 rare breed chicks that hatched in my incubator. Not being at all familiar with how fast or slow they mature, I have attached some pictures to this post. I also have 4 Columbian Wyandotte pullets that are from Mcmurray and 3 are already laying and one is almost there.
    I know these are not ideal pictures, these little brats won't hold still. LOL
    The boy names were provided by my DH when the chicks were little fuzzballs.
    Thanks for any input.

    First pics is my Ameraucana, Twinkle, she/he is shy and it was tough to get a pic

    OMG, I am SO tickled that the consensus is GIRLS!!! Whoo HOO. I was mostly concerned with the BLRW because the comb and wattles seemed to be developing awfully fast, but like I said in my original post, I have no clue as to the maturity rate on these little beasties. LOL
    Thanks for responding.
