Ameraucana or EE, and gender?? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 

Thought I'd post an update.

I'm certain now that I have a boy named Sue.

The search is on now to find him a new good home.  Where I live I can have roosters, so I have time - don't have to freak out about violating codes.  I'm off today to put up a flyer at the feed store.

Wish I could keep him, looks like this is going to be a gorgeous bird. 

 

Irene is looking more and more like a hen every day so good news there.

 

I purchased 6 eggs in July, five of them hatched.  I have these two Ameraucanas and 3 Mille Fleur Leghorns.  Seems I have been extraordinarily lucky (from reading forums here) we only have one rooster out of the 5 chicks.

I tried to get all the recommended pictures but these two would NOT stand still.

I was told I had Ameraucana eggs but reading these forums it seems like a lot of people get EEs that way.

Curious what you all think.

Also curious about gender.  Is it too early to tell?  They are 8 weeks old.

 

This is Irene

This is Susan


All that red on her head makes me nervous, hoping this isn't A Boy Named Sue

I see yellow showing through the dark wash on those feet, that means they are Easter Eggers. Ameraucana have white skin.
