Please help!!! Is my ameraucana a she or a he?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

 


We think she's about 4-5 months raised from a chick we got at our local Agway- sexed as a pullet....but just recently she's begun to crow...sort of in the morning. She has always been the more dominant chicken- we have 2 others, both RIRs. None of them have started laying yet. I'll post another pic when she was a baby. These are our first chickens- so any advice would be great. We don't have a problem if she's really a roo per se- but we were hoping for some of the blue-green type eggs.

Thanks everyone for the feedback....seems fairly unanimous from the replies that we have a young roo. Oh well we're a little sad...but I guess this explains a lot of her/his behavior. He is good looking, though...this was also part of our suspicion. We will try and get a pullet in the spring because I think a mix would not make EE type eggs correct? Also-we were not planning on raising chickens.

Cockerel.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
