    I'd say 1 cockerel and 1 pullet. Comb shot would confirm.

    You have a pair.

    I don't think they are pure Blue Wheaten though, they seem to be too orange colored, especially the pullet. They look to me like what I might expect from a Blue Wheaten X Buff pairing.

    Are you sure they're pure Ameraucanas? Where did you get them?

    I thought the same Jeremy, but since I don't raise them, I didn't mention it.
