    the blue one is a hen, as the lady I bought her from said she was close to egg laying age.
    the other three, the lady said she hoped they were all girls, but, not 100% certain, she told me the age, they are a couple months away from egg status, I forget what she said, too caught up in the swap, no time to think, just time to act. haha. Poultry trade and swaps are busy.

    okay, so seeing as I'm a rookie to the breeds above.

    an EE is a cross with Ameracauna and Aracauna, yes, no????

    and the top one, the blue gal, what is she? she has super large feet too by the way. wowzas. is she an Ameracauna?

    and the last one?

    I don't want the white one to be a roo...wah.

    how do you tell boys from girls, on this breed?
    I got the red comb concept, but what else. I have been reading several threads, someone mentioned green shiny feathers, but, I doubt that means anything> as they suggested it female for that.
    the white one has several beautiful green shiny feathers coming out. just gorgeous color.
    this he/she is a very laid back bird.

    Ameracauna, Aracauna and EE's really confuse me. I would love to see a pic of one of each to compare. I feel dumb. [​IMG]

    I would say
    1. Girl EE
    2. Don't give up yet as a girl, but more likely a boy EE
    3. Girl EE
    4. girl Dark Cornish

    EEs are a mix breed that carries the blue egg gene, not necessarily a mix between Araucana and Ameraucana, could be a mix of either of those with any breed, even the results of two different recognized colors of Am bred together are EE's even though both parents were pure, the outcome offspring aren't a recognized color... Crazy huh! They can lay anything from blue to olive to brown to pinkish eggs, never know til they start to lay. The EE's are kinda difficult to sex unless it is blatantly obvious early on, as I said a few min ago in another post, my EE has had a red face/comb since before I got her at 3 to 3 1/2 months old. She just started laying at 7 months. One of the hardest for me to tell if they are true Ams and not EEs is when the blue EEs have the slate legs... If you don't get them from a breeder, breeding that particular color of AM more than likely it's a blue EE and it won't breed true. Yours looks to be an EE as far as it has different body structure than my blue AM.
    Pic of my Blue Am(bought her from a lady who breeds them for show)... Asked if she had a cull, didn't have to be perfect for show. Just for a pet and eggs... So she sold me Boo, her flaw that I can see is her middle toes curve in.
    Boo's pic has been shown all over these forums at one point or another...
    Next is Liberty, an EE I got from Shelleyd2008 that she hatched from eggs she got from a fellow BYCer.
