    Hello, and thank you in advance! I am still new to this and appreciate the shared knowledge. We bought 4 chicks from a feed store that were advertised as Ameraucana/EE mixes. Three of them are clearly hens and are all the same brown color. One feathered out white. Should I suspect roo? It's beautiful, and I would love to think it's not a rooster, but I'm afraid it might be! I took about 100 pictures, these are the best. Some are only good for head shots, others for body. Thanks again! [​IMG]

    Are family has had lots of experience with Ameraucana breed. Some friends of ours told us that the white ameraucanas are roosters so we hatched a ameraucana and it was white so we went on and on about are new white rooster then when "he" grew up it was a hen. Looking at the comb I think it is a roo but I'm not positive.

    "He" is approximately 12 weeks. The tail feathers have a metallic green sheen to them too. I'm pretty sure he's a roo [​IMG] Too bad, he's really pretty.

    The pretty, friendly ones are always the roosters. Sorry, he's a fine ee cockerel.

    100% cockerel. I've had a few black and whites and they've always been really friendly roosters [​IMG]

    The Easter Egger in the pic is a pullet, the other is a cockerel.
