    I ordered 5 Americaunas and 5 pullet assortments from Ideal. I don't remember my first batch being this tiny! Let me know what you think they are. Only one has green-ish legs, so I'm not sure which other 4 are Americaunas. (EEs)

    Edited to add: I made them small to make it easier to load.

    Chick 10: She has the craziest little patterns on her face!

    Chick 9: Looks like my Barred Rock from my first batch.

    Chick 8: Not sure about this one.
    [​IMG]

    Chick 7: Not sure about this one either.
    [​IMG]

    Chick 6: This is the loud mouth!
    [​IMG]

    Chick 5: Cute markings, not sure what she is.
    [​IMG]

    Chick 4: This one looks similiar to my Barred Rock, but not the same. Any idears?
    [​IMG]

    Chick 3: I'm guessing this one is an Americauna. She actually looks A LOT like the one I lost!
    [​IMG]

    Chick 2: Never had one of these! She's all orange.
    [​IMG]

    Chick 1: Not sure...

    Have fun with them! [​IMG] And, good luck with the ID's!! [​IMG]

    Robert, I've already sent away for the papers! [​IMG]

    I still can't get over how tiny they are! I guess I really got used to seeing my chunky 6 week olders!

    Thank you Rebel!

    Very cute!!!! Chick #7 looks just like our EE peep did. Here's a pic of her (him?) now. Sorry; I don't know how to make the pic smaller. This chick is 6 weeks old.

    Congrats! They're so cute. 8 looks like like my baby RIR and 7,3 & 1 look like my Americana babies. Have fun and good luck!

    Another way to tell the ameracaunas from the other chicks is to look at their cheeks. They have poufier cheeks than the other chicks. [​IMG] Also, they will look like they have eye-liner on, but that's not a sure one because there's another breed of chicken that has that too (I can't remember at the moment). #2 looks like a buff orpington chick, and I agree with you about the barred rocks.

    They are too cute! Makes me want more, but I don't have any room right now.. lol

    I hope yer right chickngurl! I was hoping for a BO!
    I did notice the poufier cheeks... I was trying to get a picture showing that, but the little boogers don't like to hold still. (I got plenty of pictures of chick butts though!)

    Lilralphie- I love the coloring on your chick, so I'd be tickled pink if mine turned out like that!

    ChickieDee- I hope you're right... that means I would just have to figure out which 2 are my other Americaunas(EEs)!
