    Hello all, I need your help!! I ordered 5 silver laced wyndonettes and 5 ameracauna pullets So far the wyndonettes seem true to their sex... However I am doubting some of my Ameracaunas (well they were sold as such but I'm suspicious they are Easter Eggers). So anyone wanna take a shot at it??
    1. This is Gertrude. "She" is my favorite because although she's not the prettiest, she is a riot! Super friendly and inquisitive.. This is what has made me suspicious she is also the smallest :/[​IMG]

    2. This is Georgia, my second smallest and second most friendly (also my kids favorite ALT=""]https://www.backyardchickens.com/content/type/61/id/6528010/width/350/height/700[/IMG]

    3. This is Sally, she is very curious but shy.[​IMG]

    4. This is Sharkeesha, my kids insisted on this name because she would pick and jump on the other chicks when she was little and it reminded them if a YouTube stream they saw. She is one of my shyest girls and likes to hang out with the wyndonettes making it hard to get pictures. SMH..[​IMG]

    5. Last but not least Beatrice. She is my biggest girl, also shy.[​IMG]

    WELCOME TO BYC!!

    Ok to start off it looks like your ameracaunas are actually EEs. (Very common mistake.) How old are your birds? I'd guess that #5 is the cockerel. The rest look like pullets.

    Thank you for responding!! my pictures got kinda messed up in the upload... #2 Georgia is the orangie cream one, and they are 6 weeks old. So Beatrice is the brown one, you are thinking Roo for "her"?

    Oh sorry. Yes, #5 looks like to cock. But there is still a high chance of him being a she.

    The only one pinging my roo-dar is Sally. Can we get a profile body shot of that bird?

    If any of them were to be a cockerel, I think it would be Beatrice. However, none of them are an obvious cockerel right now. EEs can be a little tricky, though.

    I know!!! These EEs are driving me crazy!! Either way I am keeping her/him. I have a 5 mo. Old rooster but he is not for breeding. He showed up in my yard and I've been having a hard time getting rid of him (much to the dimay of my neighbors). He's a modern day game cockrel.. Totally useless for stew, but he's a beautiful specimen and a sweetie!!

    Looks pullet-ish to me. Maybe post again in 3-4 weeks for a re-check.
