    I hatched these "darling" ahem [​IMG] Ameracaunas on March 26 which puts them at about 10 weeks this coming weekend.. These two are little hellions! Ok to me but troublemakers to the other chicks..Peck and run games [​IMG]

    Anyway, Just wondering if anyone had some good eyes for sexing these guys..It's hard to tell..One is a bit lighter than the other..That one has the lighest little peep peep..and is loving to me..the darker one is quiet and more aloof..

    Appreciate the help!

    Quote:What is it that is making them look like boys? So Might be Billy the Kid & Jesse James [​IMG] And when I look at the pea comb..it seems like there is just one very small row down the center..does that indicate female? actually both of them are pretty flat on their combs..unlike the Olive Eggers who are very pronounced...I am trying to learn. It is confusing! thanks!!

    At 9 weeks, I do not think that pullet combs would be so red and pronounced. I would say two cockerel as well. Sorry. Very pretty birds.

    Look like the black amer cockerals I have right now. SO I would say them there are boys.

    both look like girls to me, my EE have frequently had that much red at that age, but small, plus the solid coloring.
