    I'm pretty sure 4 of them are pullets, but I wanna get someone more familiar with them to offer their opinion

    ^^ the one I suspect is a cockerel is circled on the left. He has dark colored feathers coming in on his neck, a dark rust color. This was about a week ago. They are 3 weeks old now and he's got a lot of black coming all over in so I'm thinking Wheaten. Also, I circled the one on the right because this one is much lighter than the rest, she has only a tiny touch of blue. maybe a splash?

    ^^ here's the lightest one with no blue and very light pastel buff color coming in on her neck

    ^^ this one and the next two are all identical. if it weren't for the little spot on one of their heads I wouldn't be able to tell them apart

    ^^ the third one. all these ones are getting a pastel buff color coming in on their necks. at least one unfortunately lacks the muffs/beard

    Excuse the dirty feet and beaks. they were having a little feeding frenzy after I got home from work

    So what do you think?

    I'm inadvertently giving this a bump. should I post this in the Ameraucana thread instead?

    I would because they would know what they were looking at.
