    Sorry for the title typo. Posting with too much going on around me!!!
    We got these "pullets" that were purchased sexed from a hatchery.
    I think they are silver laced wyandottes. They should be around 16 weeks old. I know nothing about chickens, I'm a complete newbie. This is the only one that is developing a much bigger and redder comb. I tried to get good pictures but these chickens are quick![​IMG]

    Wow thank you so much!!
    I should probably post all of my chickens on here. I didn't realize Easter Eggers are so varied in color! We have a few brown/white/gray ones that are supposedly Ameracaunas. Are those the same as Easter Eggers? Thank you so much!!

    Many hatcheries call Easter Eggers "Americanas" or Ameraucana/Araucanas. However, these bird are actually Easter Eggers. You'll rarely get true Ameraucanas from a hatchery. True Ameraucanas come in only a few specific color varieties and lay blue eggs. Easter Eggers can look like anything and can lay eggs of many different colors.

    Agree they all look like Easter eggers, but only the one cockerel.
