    I wanted to see if any of you could help me with sexing these 4 8-weekers? I was told they are Blue Ameracaunas, but I believe they may be EEs. :/
    This is my lightest, I'm thinking cockerel, but also very "feminine" looking. Pea comb. Wattles. Both red. Tail shoots straight up.

    This is my next lightest. Leaning toward pullet. Her lacing is beautiful, as is her coloring. Single comb. Pink. Tail waterfalls over.

    My second darkest, this one looks just like a Brown Red Pullet. Looks like a pea comb. Pink. Tail shoots straight up.

    This is my darkest. Almost black, with domed visible lacing. Looks like a pea comb. Pink. Tail shoots straight up.

    Any help or guesses would be welcomed!

    I agree, the first 2 do not have Ameraucana combs. The 3rd one is not Ameraucana color. I can't tell about the 4th one.

    I think all four of them are Easter Eggers. The top EE is probably an Ameraucana x Wyandotte, and likely a cockerel. The bottom three are all likely pullets.

    I agree with Bantamlover21's guesses.
