I have 8 week old Ameraucana chicks. The combs are redder than the photos show. Any help in sexing is greatly appreciated.


#1.




here is a shot of #1's back




#2






This last picture compares chick #1 to a third chick that I believe is a pullet due to her narrower comb and classic pullet feathering.

Those are both pullets.

Thank you for the welcome


Oh goody, I hope you both are right.

I was concerned as the first two chicks have broader combs and chick #1 has red patches showing on it's back.
