    IMG_0243.JPG IMG_0244.JPG IMG_0242.JPG I have a 12.5 week old Blue Ameracauna, and I have a sneaky suspicion that it's a male. I am hoping you'll say otherwise! Only two eggs hatched in this lot and one of the babies was stoken by a fox, so this is the only one I have left and I was really hoping for a hen!

    Sorry but I must agree, it looks like a male. The comb is pretty dark, my ameracauna hens had light pink combs, not red. However, my ameracauna roo was SO sweet, he was very loving and a good protector. I didn't mind having him around one bit.

    Well I guess I should change Thelma's name to something else then! LOL! Thank so much everyone for your input - I had a feeling it was a rooster. Well darn!
