The early bird does get the worm!

Someone has been very busy this morning. 

We need to get this girl some chickens.

We have winners for all four birds.

Day 1 - Ameraucana
You will also see this as Araucana or Americana, or as I stated in my hints, a combination of the two - Ameraucana.  I have three older birds that I have always pronounced Araucana.  They lay light green eggs and are just easy birds to have.  One of them started trying to sit her nest when I introduced the younger chicks to them.  If I had known earlier, I would have put her with the babies and let her foster them.  I really feel like she would have taken over for me and done a much better job.

Day 2 - New Hampshire Red
This proved to be a little trickier than I thought it would be, but it is from the Rhode Island Red line.

Day 3 - Barred Rock
I left history of this breed on the "Hints" post.

Day 4 - Silver Laced Wyandotte (pronounced wine-dot)
I am really impressed that this one was guessed so quickly.  I was leaning more toward a Silver Spangled Hamburg, but the leg color wasn't right.

I hope you are all having fun.  This has been interesting for me.  There will be another bird posted this evening. 

Now give Google a rest for the day.


  1. I'd like to know how someone is guessing these so fast...

  2. Fun ,fun ,fun! Learning so much about chickens. Just love the virtual farm. Hubby just walks by shakes head and says no. I told him there was a prize at the end and he said it better not be a chicken. Funny man.

  3. I have two roosters for the Grand Prize!
