    Hi all,
    My turn to ask for advice. I have 6 pure bred ameraucanas from Whitmore farm which I got straight run about 13 weeks ago. They all seem to have curved tail feathers, but not all have the pointy hackle and saddle feathers so I am still holding out hope that there may be some girls in the batch. Here are two that I hope are girls.

    They both look like boys to me because of the saddle feathers and hackles I think.

    Both definite cockerels. Those killer saddle feathers give it all away.

    Oh, no!!! I think I have 6 out of 6 cockerels then. Oh boy. Gotta ask the breeder what he puts in the feed of his ameraucanas because last time I got 3 out of 4 boys.
