    Wow! Theyre beautiful! Im pretty sure theyre both birls, considering theyre combs are so small, and a rooster would take control of the flock, have they been agresive? Yea, i think you have 2 Americana girls! Have fun!

    I sure hope so!! They are always together, I'd hate to have to split them up.

    They look pulletish to me too. And they are blue, the lighter one might end up being splash- they're beautiful!

    They are both blue. The lighter one is definately a male. The darker one is probably also a male, I can't see the definition of the comb in the picture, but it is pretty pink.

    But they don't have any waddles. By this age I had pullets with combs just like this and then my 2 roosters but their combs are a lot bigger and they began growing their waddles at 3 weeks old. From those pics I would say you have 2 girls, especially at that age!

    Ameraucanas have little to no wattles, preferably none.

    With my birds, 7 week old pullets have a nearly flat comb. Almost nothing there. Especially under 2 months old. I would guess these are boys if they were in my backyard. Well I might hang on to hope that they were pullets but deep in my heart I would know they are boys. [​IMG]
