    Just curious, how old are your chicks, Phage?
    I am so nervous about finding out how many boys/girls I have, I keep looking for pics of Ameraucana combs. [​IMG]

    Ooohhhh, well if they are that young, I take back what I said about the last one being a pullet. A 6-7 week old pullet wouldn't have that much red to the comb/face...

    I took the pics tonight in low light and that made all the colors really intense. Not sure if that makes a difference?

    OK would anyone in san Diego like the 2 blue wheaten ameraucana roos.
    They are super friendly. 7 weeks.
    Free to good home only (too nice for eating).

    What worries me are the late bloomers. I would like if the roos all showed themselves at 7 weeks..
    You have beautiful roos anyway (even if the last one doesn't turn out to be a pullet), Phage.
