    My 3 white Am's are 17 weeks old (yesterday) and none of them are crowing. I still don't think it's safe to say they're all girls but at least two are. I'm getting so close to those blue eggs..[​IMG]

    Quote:My two serviving White Ams are so pretty! [​IMG] I know for sure I have a pair. The combs look just the same, but their tails are totaly different. The male has a round tail with long feathers hanging off it, and the female has a perfect unside down V shaped tail.

    Aren't yours just a few weeks older than mine? I don't see any thin saddle feathers on my suspected one yet but they are going through a molt. Its tail looks like the other two's, so all I can do is wait just a little while longer. Its comb is just a tad too wide and is making me worry. I have no other roos so I don't know what's making it delayed or what? The one with the fluffiest beard and muffs looks just like her mom [​IMG]

    Had to share.. got 15 chicks hatch from 20 (shipped) eggs at the WE. [​IMG]
    Sadly only 4 are wheaten amaraucanas.

    Is it possible to sex 'little" wheaten amaraucanas chicks? Does dark markings on wing feathers at a week suggest boy or is color at that stage random?


    Edited to say.....
    also got a 2/16 hatch from my other batch so you win some.....but only some....

    This is one of my Ramey buffs. He's my favorite, but has a goofy comb. There is only one row- like a single comb with rounded bumps. He's my little shadow [​IMG]

    Just put a few wheatens and lavs on lockdown. I was getting huge eggs from the lav pen and I thought they'd be splits, but all the ones that hatched last week are lavender. Wondering if my Crystalcreek's Smith pullet started up early since she hatched from a jumbo egg. [​IMG]

    I really can't wait! Are you still wanting to breed yours to another white line?​
