    Here are my 12 new Americana chicks. Full aware they are not Amaraucana rather a variety breed derived from them know as Easter Eggers.

    Please watch video and correct me if I'm wrong I counted 6/6 but I think its 5f 7m

    They sure are cute. But feather sexing isn’t a guaranteed way of sexing chicks.

    Now with EEs once they feather out, girls have a more blended color and boys are flashy with splotches and oftentimes red over the wings.

    I will look for that as they grow. I did not know that.
