    Bought 4 chicks from a local farm, that looked identical, thinking them to be blue wheatons. Now they are around 3 weeks old and two look like the pictures I have seen of blue wheatons, any help is appreciated.

    From what I can see, those combs look like pea combs. I think that it is possible that you have some Wheaten Ameracaunas, or Ameracauna crosses (because the legs aren't blue yet). They may be Blue Wheaten, but I can't tell at this age. You have two males and two females. The darker ones are males, and the lighter ones are females
