    Both look like hatchery true Ameraucanas. EE tend to look much different. You do have a red cockerel.

    We did figure that one of the reds were a rooster. Hopefully he is the only one. We got 5 reds. 5 BR, 8 BO, and 2 Blue Ameraucana. All were supposed to be female. We aren't supposed to have roosters where we live so once they are older we will have to get rid of him. :(

    Ok that's much better. For some reason I read your post as if you had ordered only the blue. Yes, the two look right, just one has more of a beard and fluffier muffs than the other. sorry I misunderstood!

    Thank you all for the replies. :clap Very happy to hear that we got what we ordered. Now... If only spring would come here to New England so we can get them settled outside in their coop!

    They are fully feathered. They will be fine outside.
