    I bought some "olive egger" eggs and hatched them out. They are from Amerucana hens and a Welsummer rooster. Do you think the one in the middle photo below is a boy? He's got the most prominent comb. They are 8 weeks old now. There are three in this photo, I actually have four.

    Definite male. Those red wing bars are male specific.

    I don't see red wing bars, I see a gold bird with a mahogany gene.

    That's not a characteristic of a pullet.

    For 8 wks, that's a lot of red in the comb and wattle.
