    Good morning everyone! I am learning about and falling in love with my first time chicks here. We bought jusf one day old chicks from TSC and they are now just a couple days shy of 5 weeks old. Im starting to think these babes may not be the gender or even the breed we thought we got lol. We do have a plan for the roosters we are unable to keep but still would be so sad to see them go if thats the case. Anyome want to take a crack at the guessing game with these beauties? We were told they were 3 Amerucanas and 3 BO. Probably not the best pictures of the full bird but they just werent into an early morning photo session

    Thanks. That one is a little different, more feathered in than the other two ameraucanas. Can you get pictures of the combs of A and D? Thanks. It does look like you have ameraucanas and BOs, though. :)

    That one looks like a pullet too.
    A general rule for chicks is the pullet's combs will develop a lot slower, and they will take longer to get red. The rooster will feather in slower, though.

    besides the ones that are not facing the camera I think they are all pullets besides maybe F. The red ones are supposed to be buff orpingtons? I don't think they are maybe red star or red sex links? Buff Orpingtons are supposed to be... well... buff in color lol [​IMG]

    You have Easter Eggers and red sex links. All the red ones are pullets. The EEs look like pullets as well.
