    I hatched two Ameraucana from some eggs I purchased and was wondering if I could get some opinions on what sex they are. They are 10 weeks old. They are a bit messy as they love to stick there feet in the water dish, get feed to stick to their feet, dip them again in the water and then eat the wet feed out of the water dish. Strange but fun to watch. I hatched a blue and a black. These are sure hard to tell. Here they are.

    I also mail ordered a white Ameraucana but I suspect it is an EE as the legs look more green/yellow than gray/blue. Here is a pic of its comb. It is terrified of people so it wiggles really bad so the pic isn't to clear. After watching this birds comb get big and red while it still hasn't gotten a tail or top wing feathers at a younger age than my chicks I have an inkling of hope that maybe my blue chick is a girl as well.

    The white is supposed to be about the same age as the other two but I suspect it to be a bit younger by about two weeks. I mail ordered it as an older bird so not sure.

    The white EE looks like a boy. The top 2 are girls.
