Hello Chicken Experts!!
I was hoping someone can take a look at the following pictures of my two Wheaton Ameraucana chicks. We picked them up the day they hatched, March 29th. They are about 4 1/2 weeks now. Tenley was much larger than the others when we picked them up and had a large amount of wing and tail feathering already. We think she may be a few days or a week older than the rest. These two are supposed to be pure Wheaton Ameraucana female chicks. I was surprised at how dark their feathers are. I am hoping someone can confirm if these are indeed pullets or if I have a rooster? Tenley seems to be a bit of a bully in the coop these days and her comb is getting pink, but I do think she may be older too. Thank-you in advance for your replies. ( lots of pics)
These last pics are when they were younger:
ABOVE: March 29th Hatch Day! You can see Tenley is taller and bigger and has wing and tail feathers already - thinking she may be older.
Above: you can see Tenley lying with the Barred Rock chick and Nugget is lying just above them you can see the spots on her head.
Above: Nugget (on the left) and Tenley - approx. 2 1/2 weeks old
Outside - Tenley on left
Sorry for so many pictures. Thank-you for your help.
I'm leaning towards tenley being a roo - and nugget a pullet. Tenley's comb has 3 rows and is pinker. Nugget has one row, is narrower and isn't as pink..
