    I know the mother of these chickens where Ameraucanas. Miracle, Boomstick, and Zombie all came from the same hen. Taco was from a different hen. Both being Ameraucana. Roosters I am unsure of. They were born on Sep 12th, so the are 6 weeks and a couple days old.

    I don't know why, I am guessing lighting. But my camera did not want to do good color shots.

    I already found out in a prior post that my only white chicken from this incubation hatch (leghorn breed) is a rooster. So I am in a tough spot if I have more then just him. [​IMG] So I need to start planning now if I do. Please help.....

    Zombie is a cockerel, and possibly Taco. Miracle and Boomstick look more like pullets.

    I guess I have some planning to do. Guess time will tell exactly how many are roosters.

    Looks like your pullets' dad was some kind of crested breed.

    Crested/straight comb. Boomstick and Miracle look like they might have peacombs, but the other two definitely don't. They're interesting mutts.

    Better pictures of the combs (not so washed out) and feathers in natural daylight would help.
