She is so sweet too and since I only bought one I allowed her to sit in my lap for the drive home. She joins the brooder of 3 at 3 weeks old (a cuckoo maran and 2 BA's) and one SLW a few days older. She fit right in with the others and she's thriving. She's already been outside 2 warm days and loves to Peck around.

    Now I read the post above about the light ones being roos.. Yikes! I hope not. That would crush me. I can't have one in town. I'll fall in love and have to rehome! [​IMG]


    I see she has a little tail. I have been told that the girls get their tails before the boys do. I have 15 Ameraucanas that were a week old Monday. Nine had tails and 6 did not.
    One was actually questionable, but I am sure that I will know in a couple of months. You may have a pullet after all.

    My EEs are called Thora, Connie, And Betty. We did have Lily but she died whilst still young.
    Haven't been on for a long while but I am looking forward to being more involved on this wonderful site!
