This is Julie, Olive and Lolly (from left) Lolly has either wry neck (that's how I'm treating "her") or a neck injury and she's the only Ameracauna looking one and has green legs. That's why I was curious what your Olive egger looked like.

This is Penny Penguin

And comb close ups:

Olive


Julie, it's hard to see in the picture but it's getting a little pink

And poor Lolly

Sorry it took so long to respond. So far they look good. When the pink gets dark, almost red that is not a good sign. I swear sometimes it changes over night. Your dark olive egger (Julie) looks to be female. The lighter one you call olive concerns me because of her pattern of feathers. The lighter coloring are marks of a boy....but the comb is not red. Fingers crossed. Poor lolly. Is she better? If you can get a good shot under their beaks to see the wattle that is another good indicator. Girls will not really have that yet and certainly if it is red that is a bad sign. Penny looks female too.
Not sure if any of that helped and trying to snap pics of a squirming chick is not easy. Happy to see more pics.

Thank you! You are so sweet in helping me determine sexes. I'll post more pics in a couple of weeks, I'm sure any red combs and wattles will be evident then.  I can't wait until they lay hopefully green eggs! Sorry, I feel like I sabotaged your post, I was excited to read through and see your results though.

Hi again! So they are 8 weeks old and I'm still confused!
Penny, I'm pretty sure is a girl

The rest of the pics are Julie and Olive. I have no clue!

Put these pics up on their own "what gender am I" section. That way you might get more inputs. I don't want to steer you wrong. The more white one indicates a boy....but the combs on the others look very red and that is not good either. One person said they might not count as barred so.... You will get lots of people chiming in there! My guess so far is 2 boys and one girl. Hope I'm wrong.

Thank you. That's what I'm thinking too.
