    I have 3 Americauna chickens in our flock. One that I know is a rooster and the other two I suspect are as well. Can the experts here clear my confusion up?

    The one in the last photo is a hen and the other two are roos because of the saddle feathers (they turn downwards near the tail).

    The last photo is deceiving, there is only 2 white americaunas. If the saddle feathers are concrete evidence that they are both roos I have 2 to many roosters for my flock. I will be putting them up for adoption. Interested parties around Medina, OH PM me. Hatched early May of this year.

    Quote:I was thinking that suspect #2 was a hen. I think I didn't communicate that very well.

    Thanks for your help everyone! Any one near Medina, OH. that's looking for friendly Ameraucana roosters for their flock feel free to PM me. They would be FREE to a good home with a ( NO SOUP CLAUSE ), my wife would put me in the coop if that happened.
