    No such breed as Americauna. There is a breed called Ameraucana, but you don't have them. Those are Easter Eggers. And the first two have hints of 'rooster' red coming in, so I'm pretty sure they are both male. Not sure about the white one, needs to feather in more. It seems to be about a week younger.

    Thank you! good to know about the breed, and I don't know why the white one is taking so long to get feathers in

    Non of these are shouting rooster yet, but it is a little early to tell for sure. I would post an update in another couple of weeks.
