Are my 8-week-old Ameraucanas pullets or roos? In fact are they Ameraucanas?

Hi I have a pair of unsexed chickens that are around 8-9 weeks old. They were sold to me as Ameraucanas at TSC. Could you help me determine if they are pullets or cockerels? I don't see any obvious signs based on feather shape or comb but I am a newbie. Also, are they real Ameraucanas or Easter Eggers?

Thanks!

They look like Easter Eggers (their color does not look standard for Ameraucanas), both are pullets, cockerels usually have patchy feather pattern and much bigger and redder three row pea comb.

Shhhh I want her to think its a him so she'll send "him" to me!
Haha. I think if one of them does turn out to be a rooster we would keep it (provided the neighbors don't complain), but I would be very happy to have two hens.
