    Hello all!

    I purchased this bird as a pullet on October 6, 2016. It was sold as an Ameraucana pullet. It has not crowed or anything but I'm having a sneaking suspicion that it is in fact a male. What do you guys think? Hen or roo?[​IMG][/IMG][​IMG][/IMG]

    Just my luck! Unfortunately I can't keep roosters. I'll hold on to this guy until he crows then find him a good home.

    If you can't have roosters, I'd start looking for a home for him sooner rather than later. Finding someone to take an EE cockerel can be a long process, and he's not magically going to turn female.

    Dang if you weren't all the way in Arizona I would take that pretty boy off your hands. Good luck finding a home for him! He's beautiful
