Hello! This is our first backyard flock, and a neighbor with some experience raising chicks thinks our Ameraucana girl Opal might be a cockerel. I would appreciate your thoughts! Thank you!
We got her from a local hatchery at 2 weeks old, she is now around 9-10 weeks old.

I think your black one looks more like a cockeral than that one, but look closely at the hackles. Do you see shinier, pointer feathers growing or the same dull feathers growing?

Here’s the black one - Dorothy - a silver laced Wyandotte. I hadn’t considered her being a him!
