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!

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

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!
