Hello there So I posted a few weeks ago about our lavender Orpingtons, and two Ameraucanas :D At the time, I was just starting to have some guesses about what sex they were :) Now they are all 6 weeks old, and it's starting to become pretty obvious in some cases, but not so much in others :) It's no matter any way, for the record, the guessing is really just for fun, though I really want at least one Orpington pullet. So here's what I have, and what my guesses are-
Oh yeah, that's definitely a boy!
My money is on pullet. Her comb and wattles are barely developed, and she's very sweet and docile. If I'm correct, her name is going to be Odette :D
This one is somewhere in between. I'm going to guess it's a roo...but it seems like it could still go either way? Maybe it's like a 70/30 chance in favor of being a roo? LOL Thoughts? Could it still be a pullet or definitely no?
And then this one is also in between, but has less comb and wattle development than the other one still in question. I think it's probably 70/30 in favor of being a pullet :) Thoughts?
And then the two oddballs. Charlie is a Wheaten Ameraucana (from a breeder, not a hatchery). I'm guessing pullet, because the coloring is right, and there is still almost no comb development. Not going to have a great beard, I'm guessing, but it is starting to feather out. Looking adorable and awkward!
And this one is Scout, a Black x Lavender Ameraucana, though it's looking like he unfortunately has a clean face. It doesn't really matter, though, not intending to breed. My money is on him being a boy. It's just a guess, I know they're just about impossible to sex at this age. He does have a bit of a comb coming in, and he's always been very noisy and bold. So yeah, can't wait to see what happens!
