    I'm wondering if this is an Ameracauna or an Easter Egger. I'm guessing EE, it was from the Grange Co-op after all, even though they said Ameracauna. I'm also wondering/suspecting "she" is actually a "he". We bought him/her on June 6 at probably 4 days old, so we're right around 6 or 7 weeks.

    Lucky (the Leprechuana, according to my 4 year old, LOL)

    Looks like a very pretty EE roo to me... but I'm new at this. I'm sure the experts will chime in shortly!

    Yes, that's a roo. Just look at that bright red comb! And his tail feathers even curve, another characteristic of the boys.

    He's also the only one of the 15 that pecks at my hands when I reach for any of them. LOL Uh oh... DH says if he gets obnoxious, he's gone. I think he's pretty, and I'm still pretty sure he's my only Roo, so what's one roo out of 15 chickens? Pretty good IMO!

    The rest of the flock are pictured here if anyone is interested. [​IMG]
