They are getting big! I just thought I would post some pictures.
Wow, you've been holding out on me!! Your splash is real pretty! Is that leakage I see on your black? It might be the photo but I'm curious. Out of 7 blacks I had 2 with leakage that I culled..

Absolutely love your splash! I have two and they are my favorite.

I need some help.

I have 5 wheaten or blue wheaten americauna roosters that am trying to tell who is blue and who isnt. They were hatched in march. Is there anything that i can look at on them at this point and tell which s blue and which is wheaten? I dont have pics.

Breast feathers of a wheaten will be black and the blue wheaten will have blue breast feathers...

Hello, I'm new to this three and have been reading through, but I have a question I was hoping someone could answer for me. I am wondering approx. what age can you tell the Lavendar Ameraucana cockerels from the pullets? I know with the wheaten you can usually tell by 6 weeks. But I'm thinking that it may be a longer wait for lavenders. What do you all know?

By about 8 weeks, cockerels should have fairly prominent comb development.

Thank you!  I was imagining it to be longer than that, so this is very hopeful AND helpful to me.

If that is the case looks like i got the unlikely event of all 5 cockerals being wheaten. Some of the pullets are blue, easy enough to tell on them.

If you have some blue pullets, then you can still get blue wheaten offspring... the wheaten cockerel over a blue wheaten should give yiu approx 50/50 wheatens and blue wheatens...

Will it be obvious at this age? They are close to 4 months

The differences in gender in wheatens is obvious at just a few weeks old.
