    I am pretty certain all three 13 week olds are cockerels but I am trying not to let myself be convinced....although those combs, tail feathers and darn pointing saddle feathers are not helping. I really wanted one of them to be a pullet [​IMG] (visualize the pout).
    Please let me know what you think

    It appears you have cockerels for all.
    With them all being the same age and looking nearly identical in most ways...it'd be hard-pressed to have a pullet out of those.
    The redness of the skin and combs at 13 weeks just looks a little to boyish.

    All cockerels.

    And, are these supposed to be purebred Ameraucanas? They look it (except for one seems to have greenish legs), but I see a lot of unwanted gold leakage in their saddle and hackle feathers as well as a clean face on the last one. Just curious.

    Quote:Nope... they are mutts... and you have very good eyes for seeing in my not so great photos! 1 and 2 have gold leakage and 3 does have a clean face. 1 and 3 have slate legs and 2 has yellow legs.
    I hope they at least taste yummy although they are so gentle and much less obnoxious than our usual cockerels. My friend`s daughter might take one and loves Number 1 but I am trying to talk her into taking Number 2 or 3 because Number 1 has developed crooked toes so would not like to see her breed him.
