    Six weeks old. Any ideas on sex yet? I feel like this one could go either way. Hoping girl since I only hatched two out of six eggs I had and the blue is probably a boy, knowing my luck. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thanks! I hope you're all right about this one. I wanted a splash Orp from my crew for so long and all I ever got were splash cockerels. Was hoping at least the splash Ameraucana was a little girl!

    Cyn looks like a pullet, but sometimes they are hard to tell. Lisa Cree told me her birds sometimes take a long time to tell the sex.
    I have been talking to my Orpington girls telling them they better give you at least one splash pullet LOL. I have mostly cockerls out of what I hatched from them 75% Id say. So they are due for a bunch of pullets [​IMG]

    Seems I always got cockerels and sent away my pullet-producing eggs somehow, LOL, so maybe you'll be sending me all your girls. [​IMG]

    Thanks, Robin. Christina, I know about the late-bloomers. Had one that I would have sworn was a pullet till maybe 12 weeks old by the comb shape, then it began turning pink and shiny saddles appeared. Sometimes they just want to play with your head, LOL.

    Good luck Cynthia! I have some older than yours that I still am not 100% sure on. My roo has a very small comb, so I think that's what's causing the confusion. My araucanas I can tell in no time, but the roo has a bigger comb. [​IMG]

    Hope yours is a girl [​IMG]
