    Still trying to guess if the black one is a roo or not...And now trying to guess what breed it is. Im pretty sure its not a blue ameraucana like i was told, Im guessing maybe a french Copper Maran or Black Austrlop, since thats also what the guy had there. And if anyone thinks the other two might be roos; blue amer.,and a salomon faverolle; please tell me. And is it just me or does The salomon's head seem to be small?? To me the rest of her is growing but the head is still small...maybe its just me

    The black one is a Roo. I can't tell by the pictures, but are it's legs blue? If so, it's not an Aussie...

    The salmon fav. is a girl.

    The blue AM. looks an awful lot like a boy. Do you have better pictures of it? How old is it?

    CRAP. The black ones legs are on the black/ dark blueish color. Im guessing they are around 4-6 weeks? old.. I dont think the were day olds when i got them. I figured the salomon was a girl just by the coloring. I was really hoping that the blue one was a girl. These are the only other pic i have right now. I ll try to get some more in the next couple of days...they dont like to hold still long enough

    It could still be a ameraucana, just a black one. If the person was using only blue to breed, then the percentage of the offspring should be 50% blue, 25% black, and 25% splash. I know the comb is wrong, I was just commenting on the color. most likely a Austrlop [​IMG]

    The salmon looks like a pullet, not sure about the blue.
