    I am not certain if this is a cockerel or pullet. And what color would you call this? Blue? Blue/Black? I ordered hatching eggs from MPC and this little chick was almost black before it got feathers. The eggs I ordered were listed as Blue Ameraucana hatching eggs.
    [​IMG]These are poor pictures, but this chicken did not want its picture taken:tongue
    [​IMG]The sun was shining through the trees so throws the color off some
    [​IMG]Everytime I got close to getting a good photo it would move

    Oh I forgot to mention that it is 13 weeks old, and no crowing yet.

    I would call it blue, and say pullet.

    Blue ameraucana rooster, pullets would have no where near that big and red of a comb at 13 weeks.
