    I'm never good at this, but here goes...

    Black
    #1 - roo, could be pullet though... I'm undecided.
    #2 - pullet
    #3 - pullet

    Blue
    #1 - I would love to say pullet, but I belive it's a roo (with the head turned like it is, it's harder to tell)
    #2 - roo

    I sure WANT to say they're all pullets except for one of the lt. blues, but....shoot, it's so hard to tell!

    I hope the all turn out to be exactly what you want them to be!

    I am guessing they are all pullets. One of the blues, can't decide.

    I raise ameraucanas and I would say:

    1. cockerel
    2. pullet
    3. can't tell
    4. can't tell, leaning towards cockerel
    5. can't tell, leaning towards cockerel

    They do look though like they have green legs, or is that the lighting.

    Looks like slate legs to me. One of the blues looks off-color a bit, but these aren't Easter Eggers so they should have slate colored legs like their moms and dad do. Scout, Silver and Charlotte all have slate legs.


    ****Sorry, Jean, had to remove that last little thing in your post.

    That's ok, I figured it might be over the top. But you did laugh though didn't you?
