    We have our fist set of backyard chickens and are sure (at least) one of them is a roo but are getting mixed feedback on which one! We have two americaunas and not sure what our little golden one is. We are sure one of our Americaunas is a roo. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

    All are Easter Eggers. The one with the brown body and black head is a cockerel; the other two so far appear to be pullets.

    agree with Queen Misha - all three are beautiful EE's. Especially love the cockerels coloring

    That's what I was afraid of. She ...he is so beautiful!!! We can't keep him in town but had a friend who really wanted him! We thought this one was a boy too? It's been so slow at getting its feathers and my husband swears he's seen it try to crow. What does Easter Egger mean? Thank you all so much, we have fallen in love with these three!

    That so far appears to be a pullet, though EEs can be tricky.

    An Easter Egger is typically a multigenerational Ameraucana hybrid. They are frequently missold as pure Ameraucanas.
