I have 1 wheaten ameraucana, and 3 olive Eggers from the same breeder. They are wheaten ameraucana and I think maran mix. They have feathered feet and pea combs light slate colored legs. I think I've come the conclusion at least 1 is a blue wheaten cockerel. I'd like confirmation on the others. I am pretty sure 2 pullets. The 3rd o thought pullet but recently she developed some red orange spots on her neck/wing area. I'm wondering if it could be a splash wheaten cockerel? 😳 I also have at least 1 possibly 2 easter egger cockerels. I dont know what I will do with all these roos!

Thank you! Are you fairly sure of this? I am assuming the darkest one with the blue coloring. The other one would be the splash looking one? Light colored with rust spots on shoulders? She or he has been definitely a bold bird and has gone head to head with our other for sure EE rooster. So I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I only just learned about the spash coloring so I had assumed all light colored wheatens were pullets.
You have two cockerels and two pullets

Yes, there’s male-specific feathering coming in.

Thank you! Although I would love to have a rooster flock too, because I love all my babies we only have the one coop amd we dont really have enough room for a second. I have a friend who will take one of my cockerel, and I will look locally for homes for the one or two others. I do plan to keep one. I just dont want any of them to become meat! :(
