Hi everyone! These chicks I bought from the local feed store and the "rumpless" from a breeder. The feed store one's were guaranteed to be girls but somebody is crowing.. Please help!! First off, I bought this Ameraucana from a breeder (or was it Araucana?) and nothing about being rumpless was mentioned until a few days ago when I notice that it looks really strange compared to my other girls. Then I realized.. no tail feathers! Does this mean it's rumpless? Do you think it's an Ameraucana or Araucana? I know for sure it is not an Easter Egger as he also sold those in a separate pen. Here is Akeira: Next are the two that I think are crowing since the other one's are just way too young! How old are Silkies when they begin to crow? ^ A Silver Laced Wyandotte ^ An Australorp ^ This is an Easter Egger. ^ Another Easter Egger The rest are just too young! I wonder who is crowing.. My BSL's and BPR are definitely females and are the oldest. These four are the next oldest and the crowing comes from their group!
