    This is a batch I hatched about 10 weeks ago. Sold to me as pure Ameraucanas. This is one that I am not sure about sex. Seems to have a brighter comb then other two. I'll post some of the other two tomorrow. I know the one is a pullet for sure but stumpted on other two. My question is are they not pure Ameraucanas? Eggs were blue.

    I think that she's a pure Easter Egger. Beautiful, but not an ameraucana. Her legs look green, and she's an easter egger color.

    I have three from this group that hatched. I am going to be thrilled if all three turn out to be Pullets. A little annoyed I was told for sure they were Ameraucana's though.. I think for now on I'll buy my hatching eggs from here. Live and learn I guess. Will post pictures of other two shortly once I get coffee down [​IMG]

    It's an easter egger, and I'm going to say it's a cockerel.

    Yes I am thinking cockerel. I think other two are pullets. This one the comb is much brighter then other two.

    Here is closer picture of face for Number 1:. I suspect he is a cockerel. His comb appears brighter red then other three.

    Number 2 :I highly suspect this is a pullet. She is alot smaller then others and has no rump.

    Number 3: has me stumped. Larger then the rest but comb is pale comparied to number I think my be pullet.

    Number 4 : Is same age way larger then other 3 I have posted before and most thought pullet , Does she still look like she is a pullet now ? Cute a can be [​IMG]

    The first three were hatching eggs I purchased claiming to be pure Ameraucana's. Which now from learning here, they are EE'S. Rather pretty regardless I'm easy [​IMG]

    Oh also this pullet was sold to me as a Ameraucana as well , shes 7 months old. She was attacked and I helped her recover so her face is a bit odd from that. I take it she's a EE ? She is the one on the right [​IMG] [​IMG]
