    I have 5 different breeds and I know the 3 youngest are Ameracauna's about 5 weeks, and maybe buff's but just wondering what you think? Also are any of the Amer's a Roo, I was thinking maybe one of them. Then in my 6 older girls (about 9 weeks)The Mostly black one was wondering if it was a roo? Thanks

    Close up pictures of the youngins one of each close up... added on the end!

    Black one in the middle possible Roo?

    Ah, you have to post a bit before the board allows pictures. I think it's 7 posts, so just reply and comment to threads and/or introduce yourself on the thread for introductions. looking forward to seeing your flock!

    They're all pullets! [​IMG] Looks like you have 2 black sex links, red sex link, 2 production reds (rir), 3 easter eggers and a buff orp!

    Your EE's are pullets. I don't see anything that says roo.

    It looks like the typical EE pullet/hen color pattern. I could be wrong though. I just don't see a little roo in there at all. Plus the pea comb isn't red and only has one row of bumps, boys would have 3 rows of bumps.
