    I have 3 Blue Wheaten Ameraucana chicks. I have ideas about their sex, and I figure they're all BWA - but what do you think? (they're 3.5 weeks old)

    And just for fun, their sibling, an Easter Egger. Father Black laced Red Wyandotte, mother Blue Wheaten Ameraucana

    All your Ameraucanas look like pullets to me [​IMG] And the BLRW EE kind of looks female too. Would love updates at 5 weeks. What are your guesses on them?

    I hope they're all pullets! My guesses are 2 Ameraucanas are girls, one is a boy and the EE is a boy. I'll update at 5 weeks [​IMG]

    That's a horrible picture, huh? Poor thing. I love that it has lacing. Can't wait to see him/her full grown.
