    This is Fawn. She's 8 1/2 weeks old. Her daddy is an Ameraucana, but we have no idea who her mommy is! Any breed ideas? Also, is she a roo?[​IMG]

    It's almost like shes silver laced..... Wyandotte or rock perhaps? I do believe its a hen, however. And a VERY beautiful one too

    No guesses on breed but I think "she" is a "he" the comb is too red at 8 weeks old to be a hen. Going to be a very beautiful bird when it is done feathering out. With both the speckles and lacing very interesting pattern for juvenile feathers.

    That's a boy.

    Do you know the choices for the potential mothers?

    Here are some pics of the moms. I have no idea what they are except one is an Ameraucana. The old moms are purebreds, there are some older juvies in the pictures who are cross-breeds but they haven't started laying yet. The flock was gifted to my friend and the owner said they were all different breeds, all purebreds. I hatched a bunch of the eggs and tried to keep track of which was which but it's been hard. The first 4 columns from the left are the eggs of the chickens below. None of the green eggs made it.

    Fawn is the last egg in the fourth column...

    Pay no attention to that crazy OEGB! Love that guy.... he's from a different flock. It was his first day meeting the chickens here.

    Daddy is top right. No other roos in the flock when these eggs were gathered.
