    I haven't been too big on asking the gender of young chickens, but our last straight run of 2 chickens I ended up with 2 roosters and we don't have the ability to "hide" another! I want to be able to make the swap while the babies are little and non combative for the most part, if we have to.

    The other chick is a definite girl, easter egger.

    I feel about 65% sure this is a pullet. Born around halloween.

    Way too young to tell yet. When it comes to true Ameraucana, it can take a few months to be certain of gender.

    Aaaaah, well that is interesting!! We were pretty sure with our lavender orps by about 5 weeks old! I guess not all breeds are good at showing you what they are! Learn something new every day :)

    I agree. I would suggest re-posting its pic again in about 6 weeks.
