    Some of my ameraucanas from a breeder look like they have single combs not pea combs. Here are pics. What do you think. And if you can tell sex that would be great too.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Sorry pics are not great. To me the combs look very different.
     
  2. Different. Agreed.

    None of those birds appear to be ameraucanas, sorry, color and/or combs are wrong.

    Nope, mixed breed. You were duped. Sorry.:(.


    They both look like boys too.

    What a bummer. I have seven total. Was hoping to use them for my son's 4h next year and for breeding. Hope I can find a home for the roos.

    Yep, ameraucana's don't have single combs or rose combs. What color legs do they have?
