    Well we are at 10 weeks and so far no crowing or attempts at crowing BUT 2 of my 5 black Ameraucanas are challenging each other. Nothing really aggressive just an occasional puffing up

    So this is Gertrude she is the second largest and has very little to no large tail feathers yet and thinking she may be a Gus. Anyone care to guess?

    And this is Maggie she is by far the biggest and the one they all follow

    They are so darn hard to get a picture of! Or do I need to wait longer?

    Gertrude looks like a Gus. Maggie looks like possible cockerel too. Pullets will puff up too. I find it harder to sex black and whites regardless to breed.

    Anyone else with a comb like this is a cockerel.
