sexing americauna - male or female (pics)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey Y'all....  I am in New Orleans and we have a pretty high feral chicken population here. I have a 9 week old rescued americauna, or easter egger maybe, not really sure. What matters to me is if it's male or female. I am growing so attached and am hoping I can keep it and eventually introduce them to my coop with 6 other hens age 9 months.  I know it's early, but maybe someone here has a good eye. 

 

9 WEEK OLD   MALE OR FEMALE?

 

 

any help is appreciated. can also email rachaelcroninnola@gmail.com since I'm new here and don't really understand threads yet.

 

thank you so much

I'd guess it's a girl. At 9 weeks old, I'd expect to see at least see some color on the comb, if not size, if it were a boy.

Girl.

 

I asked the same question at 9 weeks.   See the difference at 9 weeks.
