There's no such thing as an "Americauna"
smile.png
They are EasterEggers, mutt birds with a blue egglaying ancestor. Sold by hatcheries/feedstores as "Americanas"/Araucanas/Ameraucanas. They are not purebreds.Typically good tempered, good layers.

I'm not good with chicks this young, but I'll give it a go.

1) Girl
2) Boy
3) Not sure. Need a better pick of the face/comb, but I would TENTATIVELY guess girl.
4) Boy. You won't know for sure whether these two are rocks or leghorns until they are of sexual maturity. If their combs are BIG, they are leghorns. If they are small, they are rocks.
5) Can't tell.
6) Girl.
7) Can't tell. Silkies/mixes are HARD to sex.
8) Not sure... need better pic of the face.
