    Welsummers, RIRs, Barred Rocks, New Hampshires, Amerauanas, Buff they are. In the first pic, anyone want to confirm the sex of that BR baby for me? Besides Dutch, the obvious cockerel, I have two BR chicks I had pegged as a male/female pair, but that one I'm on the fence about. Thought it was a cockerel, but not too sure now. The last pic is a New Hampshire pullet, one of three I picked up from the feedstore.
    The Buff Orps and New Hampshires are 9 days old and the others are 15 days old.

    They are so healthy looking. I love to watch the wing feathers develop. What a nice flock you have growing out, Cyn. Stop making me want welsummers. I have some speckled sussex coming later this year. If I ask for another grow out pen my DH will not be too happy. LOL

    Yes, they ARE little hoodlums. It's so funny that people think chicks are so sweet. Their whole chickhood mission is to kick shavings into their water dish! That's why my screen name is Buff Hooligans instead of Buff Orpingtons.

    Enjoy your little ones. They will grow up to make you proud.

    They are soooo cute, Cyn! I wish you were not clear across the country. I want one of your little Welsummer roos to go with my hens! Wait until those girls start laying. Mine are laying machines!

    Cynthia, what are the ones in the 3rd picture, because they look just like my biggest SS. The other SS is about half the size of that one. They're both 3 weeks old.

    Here's the big one

    The little one

    Sorry they're not very good. I didn't have anyone here to help me.

    Susan, those are all Welsummers. They certainly do look like Speckled Sussex, which I hatched last year. The cockerels are becoming very apparent already, too; the combs are prominent and turning pink. Michele, I wish you were here, too. I'd have a cockerel for you. These are good looking babies I hatched from Christie.

    I can see why you'd be unsure about that BR. I have one that looks a lot like it. I'm still holding belief it's a hen and sticking to my resolve to only have two roos. [​IMG]

    They're all still growing like weeds and are as healthy as can be, BTW. Hooligans is right at three weeks old!
