    Thanks guys.. I heard need of them briefly trying to crow this morning, not even sure how old they are.. maybe 3 months old? The lady I got t them from said 8 weeks.. but I highly doubt that, they where fully feathered two weeks ago when I got them.. these are pics f them tweet weeks ago

    I would guess the one on the right is a cockerel, I would love feedback after you have confirmed. My Ameraucanas are 8 days old and we have conflicting guesses throughout our family.

    Well,I definitely can't have a rooster where I live :/ this stinks.. they are beautiful and funny to watch! I guess they will have to go to another home..Thanks for all the opinions! I just need some more people to clarify what I already knew.
