Ok, thanks!  Now for the gender surprise.  At what age do you think I'll be able to determine gender?

I hate to break it to you, but that comb is already pretty pink for a chick that still has most of it's chick down. I think it's a cockerel.

Well if it is indeed male then we'll deal with the challenge.  Thanks for the info, very helpful.

My Silver Laced Wyandotte is indeed a male, and he just recently started crowing.   We have another rooster in our flock of 15, and this rooster is the alpha.

That isn't an an Ameraucana, it's an Easter Egger since it isn't a standard color and has green legs.

I agree, I wasn't as familiar with the breed as I am now. I'm looking for an ameraucana now. Thats what i was told when i bought the chick and I sold them to a friend of mine. I spoke to him recently and he said they are laying light green eggs. :)Do you know where they sell ameraucanas in Texas?
