    I've got 5 Ameraucana that are 2 1/2 weeks. I'm anxious to know who is a rooster, because we are only keeping the hens, and I'm curious about what colour two of them will be.

    I'm thinking that this chick is Silver:
    And these 2 are probably white:
    But these two are the ones I am curious about, the first one is unbelievably friendly and inquisitive, and will even climb onto my hands when I am putting food in or cleaning the waterer out. I'm really hoping she's a pullet, and curious about her colour.
    And I wondered if this one was a rooster, but I love his colouring and lighter muff. What colour could he/she be?

    Thanks for looking.

    They are really pretty, the next to last one looks like one that I have. Mine is now 8 weeks old and the colors are mainly black and light brown.

    She turned out very pretty.

    Your next to last one looks exactly like one of my EE's I got from Meyer. We call her "Chippy" & she is the friendliest little thing & is keeping that same basic coloring as she feathers out--she's our favorite! The other one looks like your light yellow-tan chicks & she is developing some tan lacing on her feathers--she is 'Miss Kitty" & is also very tame & friendly!
