    Hello, I am TERRIBLE at sexing chickens but just wanted to say 'hi' as i am in Scotland!!

    I am going to guess to don't take it seriously, lol!
    Both girls and the one at the back the darker one is or has Araucana in it????
    I am probably completely wrong and i haven't a clue about the one.
    Someone will come along soon who knows what they are talking about!!

    Hard for me to say, because breeds in the UK and Europe are often not the same here in the US. Lovely birds though!

    I know and i was in Yotkshire last week!!
    I think when people say EE's they have Araucana in them?? We don't have them here, think it is just America!

    Quote:I think it is about time we had EE's especially if they are the same x breeds.. I may be the first English person to own a EE lol sounds better than Araucana X lol... Oh they should lay lovely eggs [​IMG]

    The darker one looks like an Ameraucana/Golden Laced Polish cross. [​IMG]

    I'm not sure about the other ones breed, but they're both girls.
