Can anyone tell if my white ameraucana is a hen or a rooster?

    I bought this white "hen" as a two day old salmon faverolle. I soon found out it was not [​IMG] . Now I wonder if she's a hen at all. She crowed the other day, though I know some hens crow. Can anyone tell from the feathers?

    Nice looking Ameraucana Cockerel, the comb is really red, hackle & saddle feathering visible. Salmon Faverolle got 5 toes & feathered legs/feet.

    Thanks-as I suspected. It's going to get interesting around here! "He" was in the salmon favorelle brood at the feed store. I'm guessing he accidentally got shipped with the day old pullets and no one noticed.
