Hey y’all! My splash Ameraucanas are six weeks. They’re *supposed* to all be pullets but these pink combs today have me wondering. If there are any Roos, I know that’s just a part of the game so all but one would be rehomed if so. Thoughts? I tried for the life of me to get side photos but these buddies are so flighty even though I sit and hold them every day 😂

I wouldn’t be too concerned yet. Nothing screams male at this point.

for pic taking, we’ve used a laundry basket or plastic bin on its side to contain the chick fairly well and they can only escape out the front, which helps with picture taking.

Too, youngsters can sometimes get comb 'flush' when they're excited or nervous. So their little combs can be pink when you first walk into the pen, but will dull to yellowy-pinky after several minutes. My Marans pullets combs stay yellow close to their beak/nostrils, but can get light pink when I bring them their daily greens.
