    Here are pics of DD's 4 bantam wheaten/blue wheaten chicks from John Blehm. These are our first foray into wheaten Ameraucanas, but I've heard you can sex them by feather color. I'm hoping 1 roo and 3 pullets, but is this wishful thinking? And are any blue wheatens, or are they all just wheatens? We were hoping for at least one blue. What do the experts think?

    Side shot of one of the other three (all look about the same) --

    ETA: Forgot to mention they're 2 weeks old.

    Nice chicks! I don't know enough about the wheatens to know if there are any blues in there, but they do look like all pullets to me.
