    I hope it’s not obvious because I’ve been trying to figure out for a couple months if my Ameraucana is a rooster or hen we were told at the feed store they were all pullets but she’s much taller then all my chickens, her tail is a blue green and today we bought a new rooster since our last disappeared, and she when she went after him she flared up all her neck feathers. She’s about 5 or 6 months old and hasn’t crowed at all but I need to know. She’s the only chick of her kind tht survived and I would like some colored eggs A0BF92AF-5391-4428-A60F-D8011AD04407.jpeg

    I went today to pick up some new Ameraucanas hoping to get some hens this time and showed the guy the pic since I got him/her from him and he seems convinced it’s a hen still. So I guess we’ll see soon either I get eggs or starts to crow. Lol. Either way now I have 6 more so cross our fingers.

    He has pointed saddle feathers, so definitely a rooster. Also not an ameraucana, they don't come in that color.
