    A few months back, we purchased 8 Ameraucana pullets at one week old, but now we suspect that 3 of them are cockerels. They are now 13 weeks old. Can I please get some help determining the sex of these 3 chicks?

    You are right, these are all three cockerels. The reddened comb and pointed saddle feathers just emerging give them away. They are beautiful little boys though! :)
