    I have 4 Araucana x Ameraucana chicks that all look the same. They are 2 months old. I can't tell because none have combs. Are they all girls?[​IMG]

    I zoomed in on the pics but they may now be a little blurry. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Looks like a pullet to me. Can you get a close up comb shot? Sometimes the number of "peas" can be an indication of gender with that comb type.

    Thx everyone [​IMG]
    I was surprised I got 4 pullets. There are 3 more that hatched later & much younger and they all look the same; black, rumpless and no comb. Maybe I got all pullets. I should have kept the daddy had I known he was going to give so many girls, lol

    I've read that for chickens the hen is the one that determines the sex. You should look into it. :)

    I have a young chicken 11 weeks. No one's been able to tell me what breed it is. It looks a lot like an araucana. Can anyone tell me if it is? It's rumpless as far as I can tell, but no tufts. And if it's a pullet or roo too please.
