    Ok so we bought some "auracana pullets." Which are clearly just Americana crosses. However, one of them is growing up to be much bigger than the other three and I'm convinced it's a rooster. Nobody else in my household agrees so I thought id put it online and see if anyone else thinks it's a rooster too. Lmk what y'all think.[​IMG]

    Not a very good picture but I would say it is a cockerel. Also [​IMG]!

    I'll be in the barn!
    Just by the first picture, I'd say a cockerel by the size, etc.

    Looks like a cockerel to me as well because of his size. His neck looks huge. However, we've been fooled by one similar to this, thought it was a rooster and it turned out to be a hen. Good luck!

    Roo for sure.... If you enlarge it, you will see the large red comb and shiny hackles of a rooster. Pretty guy.

    Agreed, definitely a rooster.
