    He or she is 20 weeks old. Not trying to crow. It's very shy. Probably one of the shyest of the 11 birds I have.

    Looks roo to me but not acting the part.

    And for clarification, is it an Easter Egger or an Ameraucana? It was sold as an Ameraucana but I understand that not all the hatcheries have true Ameraucanas.

    My first impression is roo, as well.

    He's a handsome devil. Not sure about the EE or Americauna things. It confuses me as well.

    I think it's a hen. She looks identical to my best layer [​IMG] you should get some good eggs out of her. Oh, and it's an EE, no hatchery sells real Ameruacanas. There are some good threads on here about the differences.
