    I am relatively new to ameraucana's and am having a hard time sexing these.They are between 4 and 5 months old so it should be easy but I change my mind on a couple daily! I am sure I did not take pictures with the best angles as they did not want their pictures taken but hopefully these pictures help.

    1 st pic looks very much like a pullet and the rest of the pics are roosters because of their hackles and pointed tail feathers. That is my best guess! [​IMG]

    Beautiful project birds!

    I'd take one of those lavender roos off your hands, if you could ship him?
