    Ok ya'll, this Splash Ameraucana is just over 3 months old. I NEED a boy, all the others have been confirmed girls. He does not crow yet, but I have a few roosters at my place and have heard that submissive roos may not crow much? Anyways, give me your votes! *Sorry they aren't the greatest pics, its FREEZING out and he is uncooperative! [​IMG] *

    Thanks I have been going back and forth a million times with him, but his comb is getting much redder and I THOUGHT I saw those saddle feathers creeping in. He was my last shot at a B/B/S Ameraucana breeding pen for spring as all my other hatches were girls! Thanks all, I'll breathe a little easier! [​IMG]

    And a very nice looking boy at that. Dont you love that if you only want hens, a ton of roos to do something with. You need a rooster and hens come out like crazy.

    Quote:Thanks for the compliment! [​IMG] And LOL YES, I always seem to get the exact opposite of what I'm hoping for, but I guess those are just the odds! I set three six egg hatches and got 10 girls out of 16 that hatched, the other 5 got taken by a darn possum when they were very young ..BOO. [​IMG]
