13 week old Ameraucanas roos or pullets?

    I have 5 Ameraucanas and want to be positive that they are not roos. I took one back to the breeder because it was definitely a roo based on behavior with my Bielefelder roo who is the same age. I am seeing the same behavior with at least 2 of the remainder!

    I'd like some opinions...[​IMG]

    I thought that I had better photos! Will try for more later, but any thoughts on these three?

    Thanks!

    the one with red comb near the water looks like a roo to me!
