Sex 3 week old ameraucana

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I haven't been too big on asking the gender of young chickens, but our last straight run of 2 chickens I ended up with 2 roosters and we don't have the ability to "hide" another! I want to be able to make the swap while the babies are little and non combative for the most part, if we have to.

The other chick is a definite girl, easter egger.

I feel about 65% sure this is a pullet. Born around halloween.

Way too young to tell yet. When it comes to true Ameraucana, it can take a few months to be certain of gender.

Aaaaah, well that is interesting!! We were pretty sure with our lavender orps by about 5 weeks old! I guess not all breeds are good at showing you what they are! Learn something new every day smile.png

I agree. I would suggest re-posting its pic again in about 6 weeks.

Too young to tell.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
