    Accidentally posted this in the wrong forum at first... hahaha.

    These ameraucanas are roughly 21 weeks old and I still can't tell what genders they are. I just can't see any saddle feathers or anything, but one of the two started crowing the day after I got rid of another rooster (one of their broodermates). I should clarify that though.. One started crowing the day after I got rid of the other rooster - and then hasn't crowed since. That was about a month ago. I have pictures that I just took tonight from my cell phone so I apologize for the quality.

    I think by 21 weeks most roos have some pretty obvious saddle feathers, so I'm guessing both are pullets.

    I also think they're both pullets. Silly girls to try crowing!

    Thank you all for putting my mind at ease a bit!

    I'm hoping since they're both pullets that maybe the one who is crowing will "grow" out of it? Could that happen?
