    Where did you get them? Are they EE's or true Ameraucanas?

    Oh sorry for the delay. I have been swamped. These are all standard girls and a mix of several different Amerecaunas. They are from Texas

    When the chicks are very young and still have down feathers, they are a different color. The lighter colors chicks are the males and the dark are the females.

    They are coming from a breeder in Texas that I have had good success with.

    Ameraucana aren't a sex linked chicken(at least the colors I have). They all look the same(or very close) until their feathers come in. What color do you have? What breeder in Texas, maybe we can help figure out the color.......

    Hi Porter,

    Just thought I'd add a quick comment that if you got your Ameraucanas from the same breeder that I did in TX, he'll be quick to tell you that you cannot tell a male from a female chick.

    I'd have to go back and check my notes and pictures but I think it was at least 8 weeks before I could begin to tell the males from the females and even then I wasn't positive.

    God Bless,
