    Hi everyone. We have our 2nd batch, 3 chick's as we think we do. Our Ameraucana chick has started to "sing or crow" we aren't really sure. She/he is the only ameraucana we've had so we're not familiar with the breed. She is 6 weeks old. Please help and tell us if you think she is a he? We can't have roosters in our town :([​IMG][/IMG]

    Thanks. I've never heard a young roster crow before so I'm not sure if that's what I'm hearing. I'm hoping not

    Hi Yoder welcome to BYC.

    To upload a picture click on the picture icon. On my computer letting the mouse indicator hover over the icon brings up the words "insert image". That is the one you want to click on.

    Clicking on that should result in a dialog box with a button at the top that says "upload files".

    From there you will have to find the pictures that are saved on your computer. Of course then you select the picture you want to share.

    Selecting the picture should pull up a dialog box where you choose the size you want the picture to be and then click on the submit button.

    Since I only upload from my computer and not other sources I don't know any other method.

    Not a problem Yoder. The chicks are so cute. Mine are all between 5 and 6 weeks old now. Which means they mostly have their feathers instead of fluff. It has been interesting watching them change.

    Much too young to even try to guess at, yet. Try posting again when they are over 6 weeks old.
