    My best friend lost one of her ladies last night and I am giving her one of my EEs. However, I am questioning the gender! I can't give her a too, she needs a hen. Almost 9 weeks. Any help?

    I can't see the comb in the picture, is it a 3 row? Or 1?

    Looks like a pullet, but a single comb, not pea? Very pretty bird.

    I bought 4 "Blue Americauna" chicks from a lady with about 50 chickens. She had all kinds. I am not positive this I an actual Americauna, but they are beautiful birds, nonetheless. I could tell my lightest blue was a Roo at 3 weeks. He has a pea comb and his wattles came soon after and both were bright red by 5 weeks. The bird pictures has a single. If I was going just by the feet I would say Roo, because they are pretty big. I have NO idea what I am doing when it comes to EE/Americaunas/Auracanas. For some reason they are really hard to call for me! I just am not sure what this little one is.

    I should also say that they range from light grey/blue to dark, almost black. [​IMG]

    It looks like a pullet, but since she does not have a pea comb she probably does not have a blue egg gene and will lay brown eggs. Pretty hen regardless of what color eggs she lays.
