    OK I think I am getting pretty good at this but I need to confirm that what I think is right, is right. These chicks are all almost six weeks old.

    I don't know about the Ameraucana but I think all the others are roo's! At 6 weeks old a pullet will not have any pink on her at all, nor will you see any growth in her comb & wattle!!

    [​IMG] Say it ain't so! I was really thinking that since "her" comb is so much smaller than the other two it would be a girl. That is sad since I really wanted to have at least one girl. Not keeping three boys!

    This was the deal right? I publicly call yours pullets and you'll do the same for me????
    That's what friends are for, to lie about the sex of your chicks. [​IMG]

    I had a one that had a smaller comb too but had a tint of red in it. I was shipping him off but my daughter swore it would be a hen, loved that one and made me keep him. Well it ended up she was right! I would of given it away as a roo. I think you still have hope for the orp but that ameraucana hen is questionable.
