    I have 4 chicks that are most likely Easter Eggers from what I have read and not true Ameraucanas, but I need some help with their gender.

    I'm thinking this guy is a roo, but I really don't want him to be. We hatched them in my preschool class and I'd love to keep.

    What do you think? He's about 5 weeks old in this picture: [​IMG]
    His comb is bigger than the other one who hatched the same day, Houdini: bad pic, but leaning towards puller for her: [​IMG]

    Now for these two from the store:

    And my two buffs while I'm at it: Buffy and Willow (maybe shouldn't have named yet cause Buffy may be a he)

    One buff is about a week older than the other I think.

    Really hoping there's only 1 roo at the most because I can't keep any.

    The first chick is a cockerel. The rest look like pullets, for now.
