    Both of these were sold as day old pullets, they are 11 weeks old now and there's another 2 out of 15 that are pretty red w/ larger combs the 11 chicks barely have any pink on them. Also sold as AMERAUCANA, I know they are EE's because some have yellow legs and not the pea comb

    The chickens in the first two pictures are 2 or 3 months I believe. The last three are roughly one moth old

    All the birds pictured in this thread are cockerels, and most of them look to be mixed breeds. The only one I'm not 100% positive on is this one....

    due to the even color pattern and lack of redness to the comb. There are three distinct rows on the comb, however, and a month is pretty young for redness to happen. It's likely a cockerel also.

    Thanks wanted some other people's opinions to confirm my judgement. Now I have more choices to pick hopefully a nice rooster out of my latest chicks as my previous rooster was way too aggressive!
