    Roos or Hens? I purchased these 2 Ameraucaunas and 1 RIR and they are now 6 months old. I was told they were DEFINITELY hens... I'm not so sure now. They have pretty long feathers and tails, larger combs and they try to crow and flare up at each other...no eggs yet...???

    All are boys. I think your Ameracauna are actually Easter Eggers too.

    The Easter eggers are cockerels. I can't see the red bird enough to tell for sure. A profile shot would help.
