I have 3 “Easter eggers” that are now clearly part legbar with the big funky crests. Wasn’t expecting that when I ordered Easter egger pullets! They are now 11 weeks old, and I’m still on the fence if they are in fact pullets. I’d appreciate any insight into the sex and also if anyone has had easter eggers like this. Was legbar used instead of Americauna for the blue egg gene? Or a mix of both Americauna and legbar?
I’m worried about the grey/brown one because of the pink comb/wattles. But the light colored ones also getting pink wattles. It’s hard to know cause they are mutts so you can’t really compare them together

They're still easter eggers since all easter eggers are mutts with the possibility of colored eggs. First one might be a cockerel but I think they're all pullets so far
 
Are they Hoover’s Hatchery? There’s something somewhere on their site about the new EE with Legbar. Here’s a photo of my EE presumed pullet, about the same age.

I’m not sure the hatchery. I ordered them from my locally owned feed store in town. They seemed surprised when I told them they developed crests. Your girl is beautiful! And definitely looks pullet. Thank you so much for sharing! I haven’t seen much online for legbar Easter eggers

Mine are from a locally owned feed store, too. I asked them about the origins when they sprouted crests. Here’s a link: https://hoovershatchery.com/easteregger.html. Granted these photos look nothing like ours, but the description includes tufts. If you google Grünleger, you’ll see more — I think ours look similar to some, just heavier on the Legbar.
