    6 month old Americauna is crowing. Is this really a rooster? She/ he is bigger than my Buff Orpington and in the middle of the pecking order of the three hens. 5 am wake ups are not popular in our neighborhood.

    Roosters crow, hens cluck. Had a couple of hens that sounded like turkey, but never had a hen crow. If u believe the old story about roosters crow only during the day, u will have a real SUPRISE when the rooster crows at 2AM. Our Americauna would crow any time, day or night.

    I think so yes, the tail, the comb and the crowing are dead give aways.
