    Problem I am having is it looks like some of my chicks are coloring in a greyish blue/ is this the bluewheaten amerecaunas and if so do the girls have blue on them too?? or would they just be cream- if so.. I have a ton of roos then.

    Still trying to figure out which are girls and boys.. I absolutely get that the dark..dark ones.. are boys
    but then their are about 6 that are.. blueish colored./grey.. and dont know if their roos or hens????
    Please tell me which are what? Someone here from BYC I am going to ship off the roos too... and really.. want to keep the girls for me

    So pleaaaaaaaaaasee... which are girls and which are boys.. so I dont pack up the wrong ones

    Please answer the questions for me, this will help me soooooooooo much

    #1 Photo~In this photo is the one on the left??? a blue wheaten roo?? and the one on the right a girl?????

    #2 Photo~Is this a blue/wheaten amerecauna roo?

    #3 Photo~The one that is blotchy with the darker colors- is that roo??/blue wheaten roo?? and the two /in the middle and to the right.. are those blue wheaten girls then?or are these all roos???????????????????

    is then and please correct me if I am wrong-
    blotchy one upper top Left- WOULD THIS BE A BLUE WHEATEN ROO???
    moving down diagnoly girl wheaten
    Then exluding the favorelle roo/ would that middle one be a girl- she /he is a blueish color but not as blotchy as the upper left one
    then the two next to my toes.. no doubt would be wheaten amerecauna roos.. I got that part.. I am just so thrown off by the blueish tinted ones.

    Please help.. and thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, I am FAR from an expert in this variety, BUT the only girl I see is between the Fav roo and the wheaten Am roo. In the first pic I believe that is a wheaten on the left and a blue wheaten roo on the right....

    Quote:Right. And if there is ANY black on them- they are wheaten, not blue wheaten. Wheaten pullets can have blue underfeathers- it does not mean they are necessarily blue wheaten though- look at the ends of the wing feathers.
