    Wheaten/ Blue Wheaten Ameraucana. Tomorrow the chick will be 4 weeks old. Any guesses? This is the first time I've owned this breed, so I'm really not sure what to look for at this age.

    With purebred blue wheaten/wheaten Ameraucanas, the roos should feather in with dark wings and breast but the pullets should feather in with the wheaten coloring all over. So, if your bird is purebred then it's a pullet.

    Thanks! The chick is purebred. I was thinking female too, but just wanted to be sure...
