    This chick is just over 5 weeks old, is sired by a Blue Wheaten Ameraucana rooster over EE hen. Isn't it a lovely play of colors with the subtle blue tones? I wanted to confirm the sex. I'm heavily leaning toward pullet.

    One of its siblings, also we think pullet. I think I did pretty well in the EE pullet dept this time. Out of four EEs, I think all are pullets. The only male was the pure Ameraucana:

    She is! I love this bunch of EE kids. Wait till you see how the Olive Egger, which is what one of them is, is turning out (Wheaten Marans over EE hen). She is gorgeous. I'll have to get pics of her, too. I'm definitely keeping her.

    Nothing is yelling at me as a roo, and I have not yet seen roos of that color pattern (the barring/broken lines) of a blue partridge pattern. So, I have to say its a pullet.

    Lovely color she has!

    [​IMG] That is one beauty of a color combo on your chicken! [​IMG] I think you're right, that your biddie is a pullet. I'd LOVE to see that chicken full grown!
