    This Ameracauna looks nothing like my other two Ameracaunas and I'm wondering if it is a rooster. I sure hope not because that would make one rooster too many!!

    Now I see the pics. Hmm. Doesn't look roo-ish to me right now.

    I think it looks more like a hen, but a good straight clear shot of the comb would help. also how old is it?

    Looks like a pullet to me...how old is she? Her legs and comb don't look like a roo at this time. [​IMG]

    I forgot to put her age. She is 9 weeks old. She looks nothing like my other two Ameracaunas which I have posted below. Why is that?

    It's probably an Easter Egger, not an Ameraucana. I have 4 EE's and they all look totally different color-wise. She's a beauty, whatever she is!! [​IMG]

    What you have is a pretty Easter Egger NOT an Ameraucana and it looks like a pullet. Congrats
