    So, we have 4 5 week old chickens. They're all from a hatchery, supposed to be sexed hens. One we were told was ameraucana, one was supposed to be white rock but looks like a white/cream version of the ameraucana(?), one is RIR and one is new hampshire red or maybe buff.

    Is there a way to tell ameraucana from EE at this time? Also, the creamy colored one is coming in with a more pink pea comb than the others, does this mean we might have a cockerel or is it normal?
    Also, I would like to know if what we're guessing is new hampshire red might still be a possible buff or definitely that, or something completely different.

    Looks like maybe a blue wheaten? Ameraucana/EE. And possible cockerel? [​IMG]

    Other ameraucana/EE, something weird happened with the photo. Looks like brown red color? Has really pale pink comb.

    New hampshire red? She wouldn't stop moving for even a second!

    If it came from a hatchery, it is an EE. None of the hatcheries sell true Ameraucanas.
