    How old?

    It isn't an Ameraucana - it's an Easter Egger

    Sold to me as an ameraucana by the breeder. The second one I don't know because its from a mutt chicken but it looks the same as the first one, so probably EE.
    I can't remember how old. I've had them for at least 6 weeks, if not longer. And they were
    Two weeks old when I got them

    You might want to get better head shots of them to give people a better chance at guessing. The second one has a single comb? It doesn't really scream rooster to me, I would expect more red and little more development at 8+ weeks on a rooster.

    If you click the picture it enlarges it.
    The bottom one is not 8+ weeks. It's probably 5+. The top is a least 8 weeks. But for reference I posted him too. Looks like a roo to me, there's 6 others in his hatch and half have the comb like him and half have no comb, so I'm thinking he's a rooster and the top is a pullet but they're from different places so who knows what breed he is. He's a mutt chicken lol

    Then the breeder lied to you, or doesn't know the breeds she keeps herself.
    Ameraucanas only come in 8 recognised colours according to the SOP.

    Don't worry though, if they are pullets, they should lay you coloured eggs
