Hen or rooster?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

First time chicken owners,

 

We currently have 8 chickens that are 13 weeks old and one of our EE's (amerucanas-not totally sure about what the difference) has recently started to crow. Since we put them in the coop and run this chicken has taken it upon itself to gather all the rest of the birds into the coop at night. I have attached a quick video of the chicken crowing and a few pictures from this morning of what "it" looks like. Im not experienced enough to total tell what this chicken is male or female. It's the one with the white, black, and a bit of brown.

Thank u again. After realizing that there is potential for getting a rooster when u buy female day old chicks, I have reevaluated the rest of the flock and it seems the rest are hens from what I can tell. If any of the rest become questionable I will be sure to post again! Thanks for the help everyone!
