I have a little wheaten Ameraucana Bantam that is about two and a half weeks old. I want to know how soon I can tell it's gender, so I have been searching the internet. All I have found is one place says that when the breast feathers come in, they will come in either black or buff (black for male, buff for female). However, this did not tell me if it meant the adult plumage or the juvenile feathers. Another place says the same but about the feathers at the back of the neck.

Anyone have any ideas how soon I can tell the gender of this little beauty? :)

Basically, I'm asking if there is a way to tell the gender of the baby before it get's the adult plumage, because it will be quite obvious then! :)

(I put this in the breeds, genetics and showing category instead of the "what breed or gender is this?" section of the forum because I'm really just asking how to tell the gender from the colors, not asking you guys what gender it is.)

Thanks for any help!
