4 week old Ameraucauna (or EE) CROWING

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Here is our 4 week old Ameraucauna (or EE) CROWING!!!  We had suspected this was a roo due to his attitude, but he's proving it to us early ;)

:welcome

you have a handsome Easter Egger cockerel there! I love it when young cockerels crow and they sound like little squeaky toys :love.

Oh, yeah, that boy has found his voice! I've had chicks crow at four DAYS old more than once, almost don't recognize it as a crow, but that's exactly what it is. It sounds more like buuuuh-REEET! LOL.

 

 

 

..and yes, he's an EE, not Ameraucana.

Thanks for the replies! This forum is great, it's nice to have other people as enthused about chickens smile.png. Also, I have not quite understood WHY feed stores (like tractor supply I bought out chicks from) will label them as ameraucauna when they really aren't! Not so much a question but a statement. I believed I was getting ameraucauna until I read enough on here.... I'm just as happy with EEs, but the whole mislabeling thing irritates me wink.png

It's not the feed store, it's the hatchery that ships to the feed store. Some, like Cackle and Meyer are now selling true Ameraucanas as well as EEs separately, thank goodness, but Ideal, McMurray, Mt Healthy and Privett are still offenders.

 

I have both true blue/black/splash Ameraucanas as well as EEs and love both, but if you sell hatching eggs/chicks, you really need to know which you have so you don't misrepresent something to a buyer.

Oh my goodness!! So cute! I didn't know they could do that so young, now I will be listening closely to mine! They are about 4 weeks old. I have some that were labeled as Ameraucana but now I am thinking they may be EE or something else. I got them at a tractor supply swap meet.
