    I am new to chickens, have five "Ameraucanas" that I got from a feed store. I have since learned that they are actually Easter Egger's but I'm wondering about the gender of two. I was supposed to get all pullets but two of them with different coloring have different combs. This is the best picture I could get to show the difference. From left to right we have Dotty (always miss curious), Blackbird, Sunny and Daisy. It is the two black/white birds that I'm wondering about. They are six weeks old and no signs of special feathers yet. When do those come in? The girls (red/black) feathered out before the two in question. I can't tell a difference in behavior, believe me I'm looking for any signs!
    Any help would be appreciated!

    [​IMG] Good to meet you!

    You're going to have to post your picture somewhere and link to it, we can't see it if it's stored on your home PC.

    Too early to tell for me but I would guess that the front black and white one is a roo.
