    so yesterday i posted asking about my bantam and whether or not he/she was a roo. this morning we realized his "crow" had gotten a lot louder than his feeble, adorable attempts previously.
    to my surprise, someone else is crowing now, my ameraucana. and it is pretty loud!
    do hens crow also or have 2 of my 3 of my chicks turned out to be roosters?!?!

    in the last one you can see him/her getting angry with the bantam.

    thanks for all the help. i really hope he/she is not a roo, i dont want to have to get rid of one of them.

    Sorry, that's a rooster. Also, not an Ameraucana. Ameraucanas don't have green legs and don't come in that color.

    That's unfortunate. I guess I need to decide who goes.
    Any ideas on what breed it is? This is my first time with chickens, so I was just going by what the guy I got the chicks from told me. Apparently, he was confused.

    I think it's a hen. I have saw a hen crow on my buddy's phone. It was one of his sex-link hens.

    To answer on the breed - It is an Easter Egger. Hatcheries/feedstores/locals often sell "Ameraucanas" that are actually Easter Eggers, basically mutts that may lay a blue or green egg, but are not true Ameraucanas.

    i hate to get rid of him, we really enjoy his personality.
