    I really think I know my answers but just wanted to confirm. I have 2 chickens, one is Ameraucana, they other is part Ameraucana and something else. Can't remember. Looks Ameraucana though. I'm thinking with the longer tail feathers and longer feathers on back that they're both boys but wasn't sure about the grey one.

    I also added a pic of my jersey giant. He's a boy isn't he with those tail feathers? Never had that breed before.

    What do you think? They're about 21 weeks.

    I agree, 2 Easter Egger cockerels, and the Giant is also a cockerel. [​IMG]

    Thank you everyone. I thought as much. Time to find some new hens I guess. Can't have roosters in our city. Sigh...

    So hard to tell sometimes! Our first round of chickens weee purchased from Tracket Supply or something and they almost guarantee they're sexed correctly. But this last batch we bought from a new farmer. He had started his farm recently with chickens and when we were getting ours, I knew more than him! Lol. And even then I picked 3 roosters. Sigh...

    PS. We got some new chickens. A Black Star, a Jersey Giant and a Gold Comet.
