    was wondering if one or two of our chickens are roos.

    The chick on the left is an Katherine, an Amercauna. Anne is on the right. She(?) is a Wyandotte.

    The "Ameraucana" is an Easter Egger, and he is a cockerel. The other looks like a cockerel but I'd need an age to be sure.

    We got them on July 10 at ~3 days old. I figure they're about 9 weeks old. Thanks for the reply!

    Oh, definitely both cockerels then. (Side note, lol, apparently I can't read titles)

    In case anyone is curious, the experts here were right. Both roosters.

    Can anyone help me determine whether these two Ameraucanas of mine are roos or hens? They are both about 8-9 weeks. When we bought them from the feed store, we were told they were 89% hens. Based on my research, they look like hens. However, they are both different in color.

    Thanks
