    Okay, so I've got three little divas. 2 BCMs and 1 EE. They were supposed to probably, maybe, hopefully, be pullets. But I suspect at least one of being a queen...

    Here they are in all their glory, with the named chick in the foreground:

    I really cant tell very well but Audrey looks like it has an awfully big comb. How old are they cause if they are young I'd say Audrey is a boy.

    They're all the same age more or less. Approx. 7 weeks old.

    Audrey has a larger comb and beginning of wattles than Jane. Jane has a bigger comb than Marilyn, but has less of an "upright" tail than Audrey, and no wattles.

    Audrey is a cockerel, Jane is a pullet and if the last chick is a BW Ameraucana it is also a cockerel. My Claude looked very similar as a wee one. [​IMG]

    So, boy, girl, boy.

    The last one is labelled an EE, not an Ameraucana, soo. . . I'd need better photos. They're easily color sexed, but I can't see a thing in that photo.

    Audrey is a definite cockerel, Jane is a definite pullet.

    Okay, one of these latest should help - if all you're looking at is combs... (and wattles).

    The middle chick is the one with a bit of wattles under his(?)beak; the other two don't have anything like that.

    Hope this helps. Thanks!
