    I'm about 99% sure that this gorgeous Easter Egger (Ameracauna) that was guaranteed a pullet from Ace Hardware is in fact a rooster. :( :( Will you help me decide? He/she is about 20-24 weeks old and has not started crowing or laying yet. We have a silkie bantam that turned out to be a roo as well and he is crowing now. We live in the city so I don't know if we can swing having two roosters, let only one. IMG_20190717_153308741_BURST000_COVER_TOP.jpg IMG_20190717_152912577.jpg

    Yeah, I was almost positive too, but still hopeful. Bummer. It's such a pretty bird.
