hi!
I have a few cockerels I am trying to determine which breed they are.
We purchased 5 straight run chicks , and they could be either true Ameraucana , olive egger ( black cooper Maran, or Easter Eggers Wheatan true ameraucana x black Ameraucana. I cannot tell which they are but I know we could have alittle of all because they had a combo of all they were selling lol
Any way to tell? They are 13 weeks old this weekend. Help lol

Those look like Americana, yours look like Easter egger. Did you breed them?
No I bought them from a private breeder who said they were olive eggers but we bought 5 and she only had 3 olive eggers for sale and the others where Ameraucana or Easter egger lol I can't get ahold of her so I'm not sure

Maybe she mixed colors. There is an Americana thread where there might be some experts on it who might know better than me.

Olive eggers are mixed with a dark brown egg layer, so usually some of the EE/ Americana traits are missing on the offspring, like the muffs, or the pea comb.
