    Need help sexing my chickens. I tried to get clear pictures but they just wouldn't stand still [​IMG]. Hope someone can tell from these. They are 12 weeks old. I bought 2 Leghorns and 4 Amercaunas or so I think I did. I'm pretty sure about 3 of them but these have me perplexed. Thoughts?

    Pretty sure both Easter Eggers are cockerels. I'm no expert on Leghorns at all, but I'm going to guess cockerel? [​IMG] I could be wrong, though.

    You think they are EE?? Was told they were Amercaunas by seller. I know they have many similarities but want to be as sure as possible.

    2 EE cockerels, the Leghorn looks like a pullet.

    Most people sell Easter Eggers as "Ameraucanas." Very rarely are they true Ameraucanas.
