Hey does anyone know what signs amerucana chickens show when they are roosters? I have three of this type and while all of them are fairly large, one stands out to be a bit bigger than that. None of them have a come yet, they're 7 weeks old. I'm not even 100% sure they grow a come considering my other 11 birds have comes. Anyways, I am just writing this on my lap top as I work on completing my coop, I'll try to upload pictures later but trying to get this coop done, my girls getting cramped in the brooder. Thanks.

Any rooster will typically show itself when it's about 5-6 weeks old.If it hasn't started crowing by then it's either pulling a "where's Waldo" thing or it's a hen.Chances are it's a hen!It could be a mixed breed when we're talking size,or maybe she just developed a little faster than the others.Once you get them you should know!
Good luck!

One of my EE pullets crowed on Memorial Day! His comb was always larger and redder than the other 3 but I kept saying "No way I bought 4 Pullets." and I was wrong.He is also a really wild color I had not seen in my EEs in the past, I always buy pullets so I guess his color should have clued me in alot earlier.
