    [​IMG]So I got these chicks today and it's supposed to be three arucanas and three red sex links..... But after looking at chick pictures- I'm not so sure AND I'm hoping they're all poulets...

    Going to need better photos, showing the birds from the side and including the face and legs. A close up of the comb area would be good too.

    Will do so tomorrow. It's the two striped ones I'm questioning. Here's the best pic I have for now[​IMG]

    If you got them from a feed store, then look at chick pics for "Easter Eggers" instead of Araucanas.

    Looks like 4 Easter Eggers, a red sexlink pullet, and a red sexlink cockerel or leghorn.
    Did you get them from a Tractor & Supply, by any chance?

    The striped ones look exactly like my Easter Eggers chicks.The stores usually sell chicks labeled as Aruacana or Americauna, but unless you get them from a breeder, they will always be Easter Eggers. Here are pics of my EEs for comparison.
