I crossed our Dominique rooster (black/white barred) over our Ameraucana hen, and all of the offspring are barred.  Here's a picture.  They have the body shape of the Ameraucana (and puffy cheeks), but the barred coloring from the rooster.

That's cool. What color was the hen?

First up I have a question about Wilford. His coloring leans towards cockerel with some red showing up, but the comb is the least developed of all four EEs. Here are the best pictures we were able to take last night. 

 

 

 

Next is Owl. Pale comb, only black and white feathering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have 10 spring chicks in total and judging by our backyard, they are starting their next molt, so I will post new pictures when they have their final feathering. Any opinions on Wilford and Owl in their current state are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

They both look like pullets to me.

This is Tikka?  I'm still torn.  Pattern in the pic looks pullet, but do you have a side view (like in your avatar)?  I want to see what happened with the patchiness on the wings.  The comb is very pink for a pullet too.  Still could be a late cockerel, but I'm just not sure.  Need a side view.

This one is confusing me.  The red comb and patchy coloring is usually enough to call cockerel (and I'm leaning that way) but for some reason it still looks like a pullet.  Is this a friendly bird and your favorite?  If so, probably a cockerel...   :hide      Update pics next week?  I have to see how this comes out.

Those are Easter Eggers, not Ameraucana. Second generation crosses are going to be real wildcards.

Ok guys I know it's early but I thought I would see what you think... Only reason I'm concerned is I feel like I can see 3 rows in her comb and isn't that supposed to mean roo? Approx 4 weeks in these photos. She doesn't act roo-ish she's very flighty and skiddish and mothers the smaller chicks so I'm hopeful
