    I have 4 supposed Americauna chicks that are only 4 weeks old and this one in particular is already screaming I'm a rooster to me.....
    he/she is huge compared to the rest of my chicks already has patchy markings of red on the wings and looks like he is actually getting a small beard ALREADY and had a large comb that's already getting red.... Ya I thought boy since the day I brought him home with his attitude. Extremely curious and kinda crazy.
    I tried to get pics but they're not the best.... Could anyone let me know if this looks like a true americauna or rooster and if so.... does this breed in particular have more aggressive tendencies? I know every chicken and rooster is different, just wondering what they generally say about this breed. I have a GLW roo who is my sweet boy and I'm worried this guy won't be able to stay around.... But he looks like he will be beautiful.

    Looks like an Easter Egger, not an Ameraucana. And it is looking like a cockerel.

    Easter Egger, and likely a cockerel.

    Easter egger cockerel. I have a similar colored bird I also had pegged as male this young. He's turning out very pretty, but I'm rooster heavy and he'll be culled here in another few months.
