    First time chicken owner of some 7.5 week old chicks and I have one that I have concerns may not be a she. It is a White Large Fowl Ameruacana. After reading some links in the section I the she may be a he but I certainly have no credability on this matter. Here are some pics.

    When I purchased them they said they were Ameraucanas but I'm not sure of the difference between them and EE. Yes they legs are green or i would call grey.

    I looked closer at it's comb this afternoon and it looks that higher on the head it gets wider. They were bought from a local feed store so I don't actually know what they ordered just that they were sold as Ameraucanas My daughter is very upset that her Lemon may be a he! I am happy though because I wanted a rooster. it is the only one that I have that the tail feathers are straight up all the time. I don't know if that means anything or not.
