I've got some ameraucana myself and there's no way to accurately sex them til the tail feathers, saddle feathers, and boy traits come in....mine are 6 weeks and there's still no telling them apart...and yet the roos each know who they are. They're the jerks of the bunch who occasionally stare each other down in preparation for asserting dominance. Lol
Yep, I put little bands on one ankle (nice and loose to accommodate growth) for anybody I see staring each other down and puffing out their scruff at each other. Those ones will be guaranteed boys.
I was thinking of that myself one day. The males always can tell who is another male - regardless of age Just like wild birds - the Robins are always fighting (male to male I would assume) over territory and they are identical to the females. I don't think birds have a sense of smell - maybe it because both of them (males) are always looking for a fight.
Cute chick you have there.
