    Sadly I think out of 6 birds (I think) got 4 roos and 2 pullets, one of the pullet is severely cross-beaked... so 1 healthy hen...
    please tell me they are not roos :(

    I don't think I got pics of them all but it this ones a roo then others are they seem to have large pea combs but I don't know
    if that's normal for ameraucana

    bird 1 cant tell... smaller tail but larger bird with not big but not small pea comb

    bird 4 on right (cross-beaked) hen I think? (smaller because of eating disability, but still eats well)
    next to bird 1 that big acts like rooster but comb is not that big

    bird 6 apparently avoided the camera but if you feel like guessing go ahead... lol


    Bonus question... I love this guy sadly his/her mate has a B12 deficiency which I'm addressing and it can
    barley walk and is 1/4 its size at same age. we will see if it pulls thru

    Bird #1, Bird #2, and Bird #5 are cockerels. Bird #3 is a little iffy but appears to be a pullet and Bird #4 is almost certainly a pullet. The Polish is too young to tell.
