Here are my 10 straight run Blacks. Around 5 weeks old. See any cockerels?
I've got some about the same age. My males, the ones I can tell already, are larger and stand upright in a distinguished way. I'm guessing the bottom photo and the middle one roosting in the second. Can't really tell on the others.
I really like your brooder set up.

I can't remember, did you get the Eco or the Advance? Either way, they are both great machines. I love mine. I candled incubator #1 last night, and have 19 from my splash rooster cruising for lockdown on Monday.
I set 14 from the black pen this past Monday, and am really anxious about the 7 day candle. That rooster is gorgeous, but if his fertility is still off, I'm going to
He is beautiful! He may be a late bloomer! Just give him a little time!
Quite honestly, I do not see that big a transgression. I bought my foundation stock from Paul and I love them. I think they are beautiful. I have also seen John's Silvers. They are beautiful. I would like to have some of them, but I have too many varieties now and not enough pens. I would hope that we are not letting ABC and Ameraucana Alliance politics invade our forum. I am a member of ABC and I may very well become one of the Alliance Club. There are many breeders on here that are extremely knowledgeable and have great birds and we need to remember that.
I joined after all of that, and really don't care to know what happened. Obviously I'm fond of Susan, and I love having John be a part of this forum and offering his insight and advice as well. As with any forum, all posts should be taken with a grain of salt andtrynot to get your feathers ruffled.
For anyone that enjoys ruffled feathers, I know just the thread
. I thought the chick on the left was a brown leghorn but she's beginning to look just like my Ameraucana. Thoughts?
If you got them from a hatchery or feed store, I'd guess they're Easter Eggers... the one on the right definitely has green legs so not a pure Am, sorry... the left one might be beardless, hard to see from that shot, but that happens a lot from feed store/hatchery ones... cute chicks...
