    I have 6 Ameraucanas. Please help me define their gender. They are 2 months old now. Also, if anyone know where some of them are not bearded yet? Also, please tell me how to sex them, as I have some more in 1 month old. Thank you.

    Those are beautiful Easter Eggers!! Unfortunately, not Ameraucanas-but never the less they are awesome birds with huge personalities! I have alot of both:)

    If you can get full body shots from their sides I bet we could nail their sex down for you?? [​IMG] Oh and what are their ages?

    Yeah, we need to see the bodies.

    My understanding on the bearded question is that easter eggers sometimes have beards and sometimes don't. If they don't have them as chicks, they never will. Pretty birds!

    Chick 4 might be your only female. I'm just guessing. Good luck, they're beautiful!

    I used to think they were easter eggers. While I bought the eggs from the breeder listed in the Ameraucana Breeders Club.

    They are easter eggers, some body shots would be nice to help identify the gender. How old are they? And, yes, if they don't have beards when they hatch, the don't grow in later.

    Please pm me who sold you these birds/eggs.

    Subverted kook to be about the same age as mine I would say you only have one hen in that pile and she is number 4.

    I'm going with the rest of the crowd and say 4 is your only hen. I've finally penned down that out of 6 of my EE three of them are roos,and all of your roos' combs look like mine

    Thank you guys. They are 2 months old. I am a bit disappointed that they are EEs, but still would keep the hens for eggs. I update the pics of bodyside. Thanks. Also please give me your tips how to sex them, as I still have 13s in 1 month old.
