    Hello, i

    My family and I have been raising two Amerecauna chicks for the past several months. Well, one of them started crowing yesterday morning. I found a farmer who is willing to swap me the rooster for a hen of similar age. Now, my dilema is...I don't know which one is a rooster, and I am starting to think they might both be roosters, they are very similar in size, comb, etc. . . any advice on telling who is who?
