    This is one of two Americauna chicks that are two months old. This ones tail feathers are much longer and I think it might be a roo? Any help would be appreciated.

    We need a better pic, sorry. A profile pic in good lighting and a comb shot are best for sexing.

    Look at the comb, if it has a pea comb like most Easter eggers do, roosters will have three rows of peas and hens should only have one

    It's hard to get a good picture. This ones comb is longer than the other Americauna that I have.

    You need to post pictures that are taken with natural lighting. With that red light, it's impossible to see the coloring properly. Can't tell if that comb is pink or if it's just the light.

    I agree, the red light distorts everything
