    Hey,
    I'm resending the pictures since they will be lost among the reply section as I was trying to figure out the uploading process. Thanks HEChicken for the instructions!!

    Please read the post, "EE pullet named Julie not acting like a lady" for the story.
    Julie is black and red. Goldie is black and yellow. Any help with Julie's "situation" would be most appreciated. Wondering if I need to change Julie's name to Rocky?? Thanks again.

    It's a common thing for EE roos to have the rust red across the shoulders and wings. It's also normal for the dominate hen to take on male behaviors if there is no roo around.

    I replied to your other thread. [​IMG] Julie is Rocky, most definitely. And they are EEs, not Ameraucanas. Pure Ameraucanas can only be obtained through a breeder.

    I think Julie might be a Jules.

    I am in the same situation with my EEs, I got 4 and all were suppose to be pullets. Turns out one is a roo who could be Rockys twin.

    Hey,
    Can anyone tell me some of the "tell-tell" signs of recognizing Julie, er, I mean Rocky as a Roo? Just wondering.

    Comb: 3 rows in a pea comb = male.
    Feathers: The red cape on the shoulders means male as well.

    Those are the main things to go by with EEs.

    I'll post a picture of one of my EE cockerels (they all went to the auction as soon as I knew for sure). I wasn't quite positive boy-girl on it.

    Ok. Here's Erastus. (Actually he looks a lot like yours!)

    Notice the 3 rows in his comb...

    ...and the red cape on his back/shoulders...

    You're the best!! Thanks for your time. Later this pm, maybe, I'll take your suggestion to go to the genetics section to see what I can find out about mating with EE's and other hen breeds. [​IMG]
