Purebred Ameraucana chicks (2-3 weeks old) are they roos? PHOTOS

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Anna_B_Happy, Mar 12, 2011.

  1. Can the Ameraucana folks weigh in on my chicks? I heard that if they feather in dark, they are roos?




    They are getting tiny dark feathers under the fluff on their necks too.....any guesses?

    by looking at their wing feathers I would say the are both females. The feathers on a male's wings would be much stubbier at this age

    I say both females. Unless the second one is a splash Wheaten. . . Looks like females so far.
  5. They are either wheaten or blue wheaton chicks. Any other guesses?
