    My 16 week old Ameraucana has started making a short, soft ,high pitched call. It sounds like "warrrr". Based on the descriptions of girl vs boy on this site ( round saddle feathers, light pink comb, small size, short legs). I think that I have a hen. My 16 week old welsummer rooster never made this sound. Is this a normal hen call? or do I have a rooster?

    Pictures are the best way to tell gender.
