I think my Olive may be an Oliver...Help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Within the last week, one of the chickens in my flock has started to crow in the early morning.  And by flock I mean my three chickens!  I am trying to determine which one it is and I suspect it is Olive(r), my Ameraucana.  The crown on it's head is thicker and its feathers, especially the tail, is very shiny.  (s)he is somewhat bossy, most certainly the "alpha."  I have attached a few photos of the Ameraucana and a photo of each of the Buff Orpington and the Barred Rock.  I am pretty sure the other two are 

female.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.Sorry about the number of photos!!!!

Your Easter Egger ( not Ameraucana ) is definitely the crowing culprit! He's all boy.

Easter Egger is a 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!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
