    I purchased these four chickens yesterday. The guy I got them from said they are Americauna pullets. He said he ordered all pullets. Can anyone tell me if these infact Americaunas and pullets. Thanks for any help.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    They are easter eggers, or what hatcheries call ameracuanas. It is very very unlikely you would get an actual ameruacana from a hatchery. they are all pullets

    They are all EE pullets. A pretty spectrum of colors too!

    don't want to be a party pooper but i'm a bit skeptical about the dark faced 1 being a pullet, the comb looks a bit pink to me compared to the rest, but no expert here.

    She has a duckwing-based pattern so the rose breast = 100% certainty of female. I have one that looks a lot like her.

    They look like pullets to me.

    Males can have it too, but not unless they have deep black marks in the wings, tail, and neck with eventual deep red shoulders and back. Basically they have "sections" of color instead of patterning or penciling throughout the main body and tail.



    ETA - I think you already know but you do have a cockerel on the far right first photo and background left fourth..
