    We have seven chicks. They are about seven weeks old now. They were supposed to all be pullets. They were labeled as Ameraucana, blue Andalusian, and Naked Necks. We would like to know the genders, breeds, and colors of each chick, please.

    #1: We have no idea what breed it is.

    It has a weird comb. What is this type of comb called?

    I'm just beginning to learn what to look for in these breeds, but I can tell that the supposed Ameraucanas do not look like mine - all my Ameraucanas look like predator birds, more of a curved profile and with ear tufts. They made me think of small raptors when they were young...

    How cool that you got so many different breeds!

    That's a rose comb, not a pea comb.
