I am new to this breed. I purchased BBL Ameraucana hatching eggs from a breeder. These four are almost 5 1/2 weeks old. Any thoughts on gender or color? Will they all be solid black?









I hatched out these two pretty little chicks from my Buff Orpington hens x Brahma Roo! Pullets I'm hoping???

Your first four are Black Ameraucanas which look like pullets for now. Your Buff Orpington x Light Brahma crosses are looking like cockerels at the moment because they have very red combs.

That is what I was afraid of.

They are very sweet, but are not completely feathered out like the ameraucana's. I was hoping it was the difference in breed size. They are actually crossed with a dark brahma, I should have specified his color. Thank you!
