I have 2 Ameraucanas and I think this one is a rooster, any thoughts? Just turned 8 weeks old.
I have no idea what gender, but I believe that’s an Easter Egger..
I’m a complete newbie to chickens, but don’t real Ameraucanas have muffs and beards? I don’t see a beard on this chicken, but I don’t have the best eyesight, either.
I wouldn't be surprised. Whenever I asked about the difference between Ameraucanas and Easter eggers the shops selling them always told me, they are the same. I knew that wasn't true, but my final purchase was labeled an Ameraucana. At 8 weeks old i just can tell if they are hens or not.
Gorgeous is what he/she is. Hard to tell for me. And I raise Amerecaunas. My Roos have the definitive "mane" colorings......
Although it does look a bit henish to me. No real waddles showing.....stature looks like my hens do. Roos will tend to stand taller in the tail not downward.......
Looks like a cockerel to me. Red is coming in on the wings and shoulders, and the comb is big for 8 weeks.
Here is the pic I meant to show. Chickens are not easy to photograph. This one still doesn't show the tail in the up position. Thanks for your input.
Still looks like a cockerel to me... Sorry!
Yes, the comb on this one is twice the size as the other one I got at the same time. Thanks.
It's an Easter Egger, but that doesn't mean you should love it any less. They are still a GREAT breed! I have both Ameraucanas and Easter eggers, and one thing that EE's have on Ameraucanas is uniqueness. I do agree with the others in that it's a cockerel, I usually don't notice any sort of comb growth in my hens until they are close to laying.
