    I got these great looking lavender ameraucana from another BYCer. This is my first time with Ameraucanas, so a little help would be great. My thoughts are all roosters and one pullet. I hope not but that is what it looks like to me. Thanks for any help. Take care

    how old are they?

    I see 2 roos and 2 pullets... # 2 is the questionable one though.... I think its a pullet getting close to laying...- it doesn't scream roo to me AT ALL - not like the other 2 do.

    Also - the bit more waddle growth is going to be noticable both "pullets" are beardless.

    can you get a picture of their backs? to see who has any pointy saddles coming in? #1 and # 4 I can see the hackles are long and pointed like a young roo, as well as the typical rooish face of ameraucanas and Am mixes.
