    I have two chicks that a broody hen of mine hatched. A friend gave me the eggs. The rooster is an Ameraucana and this one appears the momma is an Australorp. The other one Ameraucana/Barred Rock mix, is definitely a Roo...he started crowing. Can anyone tell me what this one is? They are currently 9 weeks old.

    Thank you!!

    That is what I was afraid of. I was told when they were younger they were definitely girls, so I rescued a rooster for my flock! Now I have to find homes for both my babies! :-( Thank you!!
