    First off they are Easter Eggers, not Ameraucanas. Sorry

    Second the first one looks very Roo-ish. The others in the last pic need more time. EEs can be hard to tell for the first couple months.

    Yeah I thought EE too I got eggs from ebay and they said they were americana but I wasn't sure. I have two that look like the first pic and the rest are all light browns like the other picture. Also the two I thought may be boys feathered in a lot slower than the others especially the tail feathers.

    Yes, those are EEs.

    With that coloring, the first one is a cockerel for sure. In the second photo... is it the lighting, or does that chick have red on its back? Looks a little like a cockerel to me.

    In the third photo, two on the right are pullets.

    It may have been edited, but I only see 2 pictures. The top pic looks cockerel to me. In the second pic, the one on the left looks like the same boy as the first pic?? I think the other 2 are pullets.
