    Just out of curiosity, which do you think these chicks are? They were sold to me as Ameracaunas, but I know they are frequently mislabeled.

    Thanks :)
    How do you tell? I know it is hard to see in the pics, but they all have a small muff, yet I don't really see much of a beard yet. I've read that coloring can be an indicator, but I haven't found anything definitive on what colors/patterns are/are not Ameracauna. I know that "buff" and "wheaten" describe coloring, but the names don't mean much to me. (Perhaps tan and grayish?)
