    First of all, sorry about the size of a couple of these-they were being stubborn in my resize attempt for some reason. Here it is at 7 weeks old, named Shadow. So, cockerel, you think? Mace, Zane's baby brother, has recovered from skinning his neck in a terrible identity crisis when he wanted to become a Turken and I'm putting his pics in here, too. Panda, Shadow and the GLW are living with Mace and his two SLW sisters, Virginia and Victoria in the Firetower Coop. Remember, Panda is Zane's daughter with my blue Ameraucana, Charlotte. She's in the second picture on the left.

    So, what do you folks think? Is the blue cochin a cockerel for certain? Panda is so sweet and funny now. And Shadow reminds me of a cocker spaniel when he runs.

    Cyn, i am not sure about whether your cochin is a cockerel or not as I don't have any experience with them but love the color and very beautiful chick.

    Thank you, Julie. He/she does seem to be a real pretty little thing for a hatchery bird.

    Boy! Look at Panda getting all grown up! Shadow is a gorgeous cockerel and glad to see that Mace's neck feathers are growing back nicely! [​IMG]

    Yep, can't have any Turkens here, accidental or otherwise, LOL! They are really cute. What is funny is that Panda doesnt have a beard like many BR/Ameraucana crosses. She has no real barring, just spotching with white tipped feathers and her pea comb. She's a brave little thing, though!
