    Hi ... I have a Black Cochin who has gone broody so I purchased some hatching eggs for her. She successfully hatched 3 Blue Wheaten Ameraucana's and 1 Welsummer. The Welsummer is a little boy but I need help sexing the Ameraucana's. Can anyone help? They are almost 7 weeks old.

    Judging by comb color, I say that the first two are likely males. The last one has a smaller comb and a different color pattern, so I think that "it" is a she. Post some more photos in a few weeks, though, to be sure.

    They are Easter Eggers, not Ameraucanas. #1 and #2 look like males. I'm not to sure on #3.
