    I got these eggs shipped to me way back when and they are supposed to be Ameraucana... I don't think so I think they are EE's. Also how in the world do I tell if they are male or female?
    Pretty sure boy... #1

    #1 is a cockerel. I believe your Welsummer is a cockerel-they have black on the breast area rather than salmon-brown. I wouldn't breed that one, though. The curved toes can be an incubation issue, but is most likely genetics. The others are Easter Eggers. One even has a single comb..That plus the green legs would clinch it. Harley looks girly and #4 is a cockerel. Last one is a girl.

    Oh no... that means I only got 2 girls out of 6... such luck! LOL! The Welsummer and one of the EE's is a boy but they are "special". The EE has a cross beak... He's buckbeak...
