    Hello, I'm new to Ameracauna's and I got these chicks form a local woman who said they were Ameracauna's and about 3 weeks old. They have some color variation, one more grey, one with a yellow/olive Nelly and two mostly black. Are their colors consistent with Ameracauna's and any guesses on gender? Also, the first one has feathers down the that a normal trait?

    #1 possibly cockerel? Larger than the others and has a wider comb. Also, has feathered legs.

    #2 yellow/olive coloring

    #3 grey also has slightly wider comb. Skiddish.

    #4 mostly black.

    Thanks for any input!

    True Ameracaunas should not have feathered legs. It's a bit too early for guessing gender.
