    I'm wondering about the blue and the splash in the photo (9 weeks old). [​IMG]
    And the ameraucana (both 10 weeks)....[​IMG]

    I've had two ameracaunas that were supposed to be pullets and turned out to be roosters. They looked exactly like this as adolescents. Those pointy feathers around the neck and that kind of...angry face look are what are tipping me off.

    Looks female so far, but that could change when more adult feathers come in.

    This is a rooster, due to patchy coloring and brick red on the wings.
