    Try and sell them.

    I bought 10 chicks on Christmas Eve. Only two of the ten ended up being pullets.
    2 Splash Wheaten, 4 Blue Wheaten and 2 Wheaten roos.
    2 Wheaten pullets.

    I can't keep roos... So the most BEAUTIFUL Splash and BW roos are going to Heber to live with my friend Boston who will use them to make me some pretty pullets.

    They are discussing Wheaten/Blue Wheaten Ameraucanas. Wheaten & Blue Wheaten are the color (aka variety) of these Ameraucanas. It's one of the colors/varieties accepted as true Ameraucanas. You can learn more if you google Ameraucana Breeders Club. You'll see the accepted standards there.
