Ameraucana Hen or Rooster...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Sadly I think out of 6 birds (I think)  got 4 roos and 2 pullets, one of the pullet is severely cross-beaked... so 1 healthy hen...

please tell me they are not roos :(

 

I don't think I got pics of them all but it this ones a roo then others are they seem to have large pea combs but I don't know

if that's normal for ameraucana

 

bird 1 cant tell... smaller tail but larger bird with not big but not small pea comb

 

 

 

Bird 2 roo?

 

bird 3 I think its a hen

 

bird 4 on right (cross-beaked) hen I think? (smaller because of eating disability, but still eats well)

next to bird 1 that big acts like rooster but comb is not that big

 

 

bird 5 sadly I  think this ones a roo too??

 

bird 6 apparently avoided the camera but if you feel like guessing go ahead... lol

 

 

Bonus question... I love this guy sadly his/her mate has a B12 deficiency which I'm addressing and it can

barley walk and is 1/4 its size at same age.  we will see if it pulls thru

Bird #1, Bird #2, and Bird #5 are cockerels. Bird #3 is a little iffy but appears to be a pullet and Bird #4 is almost certainly a pullet. The Polish is too young to tell.
