    They are supposed to be around 4-5 week Easter eggers. The one on the right is the one I'm wondering about. Maybe it's too early but anyone have a guess? Thanks!

    They aren't that old, my guess is 2-3 weeks. It's too early for anything but guesses.

    Updated picture..comb still isn't large but o read if there are three rows it's probably male? Anyone have opinions on this one?

    Number of rows means absolutely nothing. They are too young still.

    I've heard Ameraucana roos take a while to develop. Try again in a couple weeks.
