    A friend had a really awesome hatch rate, so I got 2 baby chicks :love but I am playing the guessing game! Up first we have a beautiful cream/black bird. Is it a cockerel? Is it a pullet? Is it a true ameracuna? (my friend said yes, but I am think it's really an EE)
    This little one was hatched on 3/17-18 so it is just over 4 weeks old.
    It wa being chased around by one of the older ladies so its comb/wattles are a touch flushed.
    If I need more photos I will take them later. IMG_20190420_140404.jpg

    You may need to post a new picture when it's 6 weeks or more. It's hard to sex before then.

    It looks like a pullet far, but because of its age I'm not sure.

    Idk enough about breeds to help you guess the breed :lol:

    I will guess Easter Egger, and although it is too early I lean cockerel because of the coloring.

    Black white patterning is very common in EE cockerels. Pullets may also have this coloring, but the patterning is somewhat different. A free standing profile picture would be far more helpful for an attempt at gender ID. Again it is really too early for guaranteed gender identification.
