4 birds all about 12 wks or so. They are getting big rather quickly, all black, have muffs, but no beards, a little bit of greenish showing thru on wings, shortish tails. They look identical except for comb shapes and sizes. Just one has a rose comb, but all combs are rather small and not too red, more pinkish still. Will try to post pics later, but for now, I was told they are Ameracuanas. Does this sound right?

Correction, the one has a pea comb, not rose. Three have dark legs, but the pea comb's legs are much lighter.

If they are true purebred Ameraucanas, they should have pea combs, beard/muffs, slate colored legs, come in a limited number of colors, and lay blue eggs. Easter Eggers can have a variety of characteristics but commonly have pea combs, beard/muffs, greenish colored legs, and no set colors for either the chickens or the eggs. If you got them from a hatchery or pet store or feed supply store, they are probably EEs. Pics would definitely help though.
