3 Week old Ameraucana - Gender???

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

This is my 3 week old Wheaten Ameraucana - Any guesses on sex? I have a few others, some have half as many feathers so I suspect those to be cockerels, but this little peep is giving me a hard time. He(she?) has feathered quickly which leads me to believe pullet, and also has white breast and tail feathers as well as a few hackles. HOWEVER the amount of black on the wings concerns me, and leads me to think cockerel. Can anyone help me out??

it may be a pullet because the feathers on the wings are more rounded than pointed but good luck thumbsup.gif

I'm with you Rorporp, the black in the feathers is concerning, though 3 weeks is still a little young. I'd wait until it starts to lose its head down to make a better guess.
