    I would like to know if these Ameraucanas are pullets or cockerels? If they turn out pullets since they were purchased along with 4 Silkies as I'd also want to know if any of my Silkies are pullets or cockerels.

    Too early to say for sure but they're not Ameraucanas, they're Easter Eggers. (hatcheries/feedstores don't sell real Ameraucanas) The lighter bigger one might be a boy but it's too early to say for sure.


    That or if you supply better photos of the body in detail, it would help. [​IMG]

    UPDATE: The last image I had to use both of my hands to steady the chick's head from moving around to get a good photo of it's frontal head. But the chick is not hurt.
