    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]I've got my little flock of 8 week old birds, 3 Ameraucanas and 3 buff Orpingtons. I'm having some issues identifying their genders. At this point I'm thinking either all pullets OR 2 cockerels in there. Could I get some more seasoned opinions? Thank you :)

    I think that the Easter Eggers/Ameraucanas are all pullets. Two of the Orpingtons may be cockerels or perhaps there are two pictures of the same bird. [​IMG]

    Yaaaay! This is definitely what I want to hear [​IMG]
    The buff is two pictures, same bird, it's of course the one we are most concerned about with those waddles and comb!
