    Is this comb the beginning signs of a roo? [​IMG]

    It's a rooster. If you look at his comb, you'll see 3 rows of peas. That means boy. A girl would only have 1 row.

    Wow, I didn't even know that ameraucanas had pea combs, I just assumed it was a rose comb! Thank you for describing what I should be looking for, now I need a magnifying glass! Lol

    My white girl (well now she is actually buff laced EE) definitely didn't have that much of a comb at that age...he will probably be uber handsome though :)

    That's mostly true, however some girls can have 3 row pea combs, so the rule can be broken...however the size and color and 3 rows at that age indicate roo.

    Well....I guess I will give him more time to mature, but I'm gonna say he is a boy. I will post more pictures as he gets older
