So is it male, female or both?

I had an EE that had one leg green and one leg yellow and one side looked like it had rooster feathers and the other side not...

Daddy is a Blue Wheaten Ameraucana, Mama a Cinnamon Queen.. here's what we got.

Every time I see this bird it reminds me of Two-face off of Batman.

It sounds like another gynandromorph to me. What happened to it and do you have a photo showing both sides? The are both male and female though some lean towards being more male or more female.

That is a gorgeously unique and strange bird!!

I've seen an Araucana before with one yellow, one willow colored leg. . . but that Cinnamon Queen cross also may be a Gynandromorph.

Yes and no. This is a collaboration between myself and the biologists at the University of Edinburgh. These birds are female on one side and male on the other. It has been proven that in birds, every single cell in their body is either male or female, unlike mammals where sexual characteristic are dependent on hormones.

I love gardening, chickens, baking, reading - not necessarily always in that order.    Mom to Lulu, the lame part-time house chicken who loves to travel.
