    Morning all! I have been scouring the web for photos or descriptions to tell the difference in females but I am only finding information on cockerals and that is easy enough.

    Might someone be able to point out to me how to tell if an Ameraucana pullet is Wheaten or Blue Wheaten?

    The difference will show in the underfluff and tail tips. Wheaten pullets will have grey fluff and black tail tips. Blue Wheaten pullets will have blue grey underfluff and tail tips. Splash wheaten pullets will have white underfluff and tail tips. It can be difficult to tell wheaten from blue wheaten.
