    I have a total of 7 Lavender Ameraucana's. Born Jan 12. Almost 3 month's old. I think they are all female for the exception of one. It is the one in the first pic & all subsequent pix w/ the arrow. I am hoping someone can verify.

    In addition, the person I purchased these from said the odd one out is an Arucana. Obviously it isn't. I was hoping someone can ID it as well.

    Thanks in advance!

    That is a cockerel
    Your last pic is an Easter Egger.
    Please post pics of the others, cause I'm thinking I see more than just that one.

    #4 is the same LA from the first post that I suspected is a cockerel. Are we in agreement it is a cockerel?

    Here are the Lavender's at 13 weeks. Above they were less than 3 month's old. What a difference a few weeks make. Now I see at least 2 cockerel's. Anyone see more? Please let me know which numbers you pic as cockerel's so I can keep tract.

    Thank you.

    6 and 5 in the last pic are cockerels.

    The white with the black is an easter egger, I think its a brahma cross... and I think its a cockerel as well.

    That was my choice as well (5 & 6). If we're right then I couldn't ask for a better % out of a straight run. Now I can decide which of the 2 cockerel's to keep as a breeder.

    Thank you Frazzemrat1
