    Hello All
    I got these 2 Americana "hens" but one look like a boy to me. Can someone help me to identify this. He or she suppose to be around 5 months old. If this is not the right topic, I apologize.
    Please see attach pictures.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Only one picture has shown up, but that one is definitely a rooster.

    I'm not so sure about #2. The tail feathers look rooish, but I'm not seeing tell tale pointy hackles or saddles.

    both your birds are males, sorry.

    Red Patches of Death on the wings of the pretty blue boy tell the tale. Plus, you can see the start of saddle feathers near the tail.

    If they're recent purchases, and were sold as hens, take them right back and get a refund, They're neither Ameraucana or females.

    The first one looks more like a faverolle or mixed with one, with those feathered legs.

    They're not Ameraucanas, their combs are single while Ameraucana's have pea combs. 1st pic got leg feathers, Ameraucanas don't & sorry to say Cockerels; saddle (tail) & hackle (neck) feathering.
