    I have 3 chickens that are 7 weeks old. They were sold to me as Ameracaunas but I know they are EE's. What I don't know is their gender. They seem to look different than all of the pics I see of EE's and two of them are almost completely red so I can't tell if they are roo's because their shoulders are red like their whole body! Also, it looks like they have 4 rows in their combs, not 3? I'm confused and would appreciate any help at all. thank you!!! Also my hubby is holding them up so I could get a close up so I added one pic of the three sitting down so their wings weren't sprawled out.

    1st one is Buffy

    Last one is Peep

    x2, the red on their shoulders is far too dark for a pullet.
