Hen or Rooster?..Help!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I purchased 2 Americauna's when they were to young to tell their sex. I have never had Americauna's before. I have assumed they were hens this whole time. But now my golden one is jumping on my other hens and is even getting a little more aggressive in the last few weeks. They still ate not laying but I have not heard them crow either. We purchased a blue Asian as well and now I'm questioning the sex of this one as well. The picture with all 3 was taken a few months ago when they were first introduced to the rest of my chickens. These 3 were bought at the same time. Please let me know what you think. Hens or roosters? Thank you!

Sorry to say, but both the white and brown EEs are cockerels sad.png And I'm pretty sure that the third bird in your first picture is as well.

Agreed. The pointed hackle feathers and presence of saddle feathers are features of roos.

Both are roosters.

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."
