    Thanks everyone! I was hoping for TWO pullets but... I was thinking I may just have three roos also [​IMG] But hopeing I was wrong! I got them from a friend who I believe got the parent stock from John. She had a blue Wheaten roo and a wheaton hen and this is what come of the four eggs I got from her [​IMG] They are ALL beautiful so I was hoping not to have to find homes for any of them but if there are three roos I may have to find a home for one of them [​IMG] I'm going to be getting more blue wheaten hens so will be keeping two roos.

    How about taking a look at at some of my 4 week old W/BW chicks and telling my what ya'll as far as sex and color. They sure have been fun so far, they are my first Ameraucana's and I am still new to how they feather in. I put what I think they are.
    cockrels but Wheaton or Blue?

    Quote:sadly, I gave him away....he was from Jean. I kept his brother, who is a blue wheaten. I lost a few wheaten hens last year to a coyote so I hope to hatch some more this fall, but the eggs are so expensive.....so, I am gonna trade [​IMG] Maybe have to talk to Jean too to get some more from her [​IMG]

    I bought some Ameraucanas a few weeks back and I wanted to get other breeders or those familiar with the breed their opinions. The chicks are now about four weeks old. Thanks for the help. I have three that appear to be Roos and 2 hens. I just posted a few of one roo and one hen. Thanks for the help.
