    This one is a blue wheaten ameraucana and I THINK it might be a boy too because the light brown around the neck is getting darker
    but it's tail is so....girlish...pullet like [​IMG] What do you guys think?

    Quote:I would say boy on the first...the second one looks more like a beardless Faverolle pullet. It has the wrong leg color for a ameraucana and looks to have an extra toe on each foot (like a Fav)....either way, it should have a beard. [​IMG]

    The very first photo is a girl, the second photo where there are two, it looks like the first pictured bird (the girl) is behind the other on the right side? The one in front is a boy. So, depends on which one you were curious about, but there's a pair in there.

    The second bird, with the Wheaten color, is a girl. Boys will have a darker color on the body. The neck darkening will happen on girls, but a darker body with that color pattern is a boy thing, and this one isn't showing it. The white on the feather tips of the body will soon be colored over too as she grows, it's a neat color to watch grow.
