    I'm leaning toward male with these two guys, but would like some opinions. They're 9.5 weeks old. The first is a blue ameraucana, the 2nd is a blue laced red wyandotte bantam. With the ameraucana, "he" is the only one who's comb is turning reddinsh, but he is NOT the biggest of the 3 that I hatched. There is another that is much larger, but no reddening of that one's comb, which is why I hesitate to say definitively that he's male. With the Wyandotte, I just don't know since it looks like both male and female get the reddening of the wattles. His body type looks female to me, and he's the only one of his breed to have hatched and he has a great personality, so I'd really prefer it turn out to be female!

    Thoughts?

    Both boys, but I'm confused - Your title says EE, but your description says Ameraucana - And he looks like a pure Ameraucana to me. [​IMG]

    Quote:Yes, it is a pure Ameraucana. I was posting an ad for an EE roo at the same time and made a typo [​IMG]

    I'd really like some more opinions, and please tell me WHY you think they're roosters, so I can learn something for my future chicks! Thanks guys!
