After oo'ing and aa'ing over this CUTE blue Sultan-esque "Silkie mix" that I found and immediately scooped up!, I realized today that I had rushed in choosing the other two birds... And they might not be girls! I'm no expert! What do you think?









ETA: They're about 12 weeks old.

If both EE's are the same age, then you might have 1 boy, 1 girl. If the reddish one is older then I say girl. The saddle feathers are not pointy on either and there isn't a ton of comb development.

Quote:They're from the same hatch. I bought them as purebred Ameraucanas from the woman who bred them, but who really knows sometimes. I was kinda suspicious of the red one... Dang. And here I was hoping to add a little more color into my flock.


Yay for the blue pullet!


The white-ish chook is, according to the lady, a "splash"? I can't help thinking it isn't. I mean, that's not going to throw blue. Right?
