    this is my ameraucana x production red chicken, she is 2 and a half months old. she and her brother have pea combs, but his is much bigger which is why i think she is a hen. she has a shiny tail though so idk

    Sorry it's a rooster, but he is beautiful and you did an AMAZING job at taking those pics. You should enter those in some contest!

    Cockerel - your photos are beautiful - there are so many contests on BYC, I'm sure you could find one to enter his photos.

    Thanks for your help everyone!
    This means all 3 of my first chickens ever are roos! Ah what luck. Hopefully they won't fight in the future, they have a very close bond.
    Thanks for the advice about the photo contests also, ill keep that in mind!
