Roo???

post #1 of 6

These are photos of my Ameraucana pullet named Amy henhouse - she had great eyeliner as a chick.
She is now 9 weeks old and today I saw her chest bumping with another pullet and she went further and was pulling at the hackles of the other bird. I have a feeling she is a roo because her comb is also more pronounced!
I can return her to the breeder, I have too many Roos right now!
What do you think?

Looks cockerelish to me.

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!

That is what I thought. I've seen my hens doing the chest bump, but it was different - they didn't have the staring down or the hackles. I may have two Ameraucana roos! I was hoping to catch them in the act, but they didn't cooperate!

It's definitely a cockerel since the comb is so much more pronounced and how you described it's behavior.

Thanks! I am relatively new to chickens - will hit the year on June 22, 2016, and Ameraucanas are a very new addition to the flock!

They are definitely a breed I want to explore in the future. Such unique birds, in sure you'll get beautiful eggs out of them! Best of luck!
