    I thought this one was a girl- but now the dark colors are showing up in it's back and I'm not sure. These are the first wheatens I've raised from egg so it's still a bit confusing.

    Wheatem males are mostly black with colour in the male pattern areas: hackles, saddle, shoulder, & wing triangle.

    To be sure, give it about 6 more weeks and you will be certain. Patience, young grasshopper.

    OK- hoping for a pullet, but it doesn't really matter. The little dark feathers on the back threw me. Wish I could fast-forward to when they start laying so I could get more! [​IMG]
