    All right, I have some in the flock who are definitely roosters and a couple who are definitely hens. And then I have these guys. Wide, flat combs but no "peas" or rows at all. No behavioural traits that make me say hen or roo. The other roosters have very defined combs already so I'm really not sure on these ones. Chicken 3.jpg chicken 4.jpg Chicken 5.jpg

    Edited to add: They were sold to me as Ameracaunas. Are they actually Easter Eggers? I have to start rehoming any roosters I can ha ha. Here is one of my more obvious roosters. Chicken 1.jpg

    This is the only one I see with a pea comb. and looks like a cockerel. The rest look like they have rose combs.
    Maybe the ones with rose combs are mixed breeds? Is that possible?

    IMG_0100.JPG IMG_0101.JPG IMG_0102.JPG IMG_0103.JPG These are red sex link but someone told me if they are not first generation then you can't tell gender by color. Are they all pullets or am I going to have some roosters? The person I bought them from got them from a hatchery. They are approximately 3 months old.

    Thanks for your help! It's great to have a second pair of eyes on them. They should be around 7 weeks old now. The seller said Americauna but they were on blow-out sale and I didn't see the parents so anything goes, I guess. They sure are pretty though! These pics are a little blurry but I can get more after the weekend :)

    Yes, they are definitely all pullets! Cockerels are yellowish white.
