Last night I went through the garage to check on our brooder. 1 white leghorn, 1 americauna, 2 wynadottes, 2 astrolorps and 2 golden comets. The leghorn and the americauna were thundering around the brooder much to the dismay of the other chicks. It was entertaining though to see the chicks, the two bigger ones, try to push eachother around. I think I'd keep this americauna as a guard chicken if she weren't going to lay eggs. She has a quick hop and can throw them feet out quick. Not to be outdone however, the white leghorn will run over the top of the americauna.
