    I know what the white roo is but the other two are Ameraucana or EE's.. And the hens are either or.. How do you distinguish between Ameraucana and EE's? I don't know how old but was told they were 10-13 weeks? I think they are older.

    Where did you get them? Hatcheries dont sale Ameracauanas they sale a mixed breed version. They are most likely all EEs.

    They were given to me by an older couple who has a neighbor who gets rare breeds from around the world. That's all I know.

    they are beautiful! Who cares if thier pure or EE. Look at americauna on google and there is a breed club website with the accepted colors and other official breed standards and lots of pics. I have 5 that look like the pics of the silver ones on the website. They have huge Santa Claus lookin beards and muffs that are so fluffy they almost cover their eyes. I love em pure bred or not. They are so cute. I cant wait til they get big like yours.

    If the hens are laying already they couldn't be 13 weeks old, they have to be atleast 20weeks.

    They may all be the same age. Sorry I cant give you a better estimate on age.

    I love the first pic of the brown roo, he looks like mine but older.

    Non of the hens are laying. I've only had them a week, though so maybe after they get better adjusted here.
