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!
