    I bought this Ameracauna when it is 3 days old. I bought 4 total the same day, all of them were 3 days old. 2 days later, this one was significently bigger than other 3. Unfortunately, all other 3 have gone (I think by predetors). Now the remaining one is a little over 11 weeks old. Please see the pictures. the brown/blue one is the questionable one. I can not have rooster.......

    Please help!

    Thanks.

    Looks like a pullet to me. No comb yet! I believe if it was a roo it would have a more significant comb and wattles by now or you'd at least be able to see the red showing thru. Fingers crossed for u!

    Okay. I am a rogue, I guess. Because at 11 weeks, those sure like some early developing hackle and saddle feathers. And not Ameraucana purebred either. Not really an EE, but still a gorgeous bird!

    A side body shot, including the legs, would really help.

    Might have to change my mind, those are girly legs! Hope I'm was wrong, for your sake!

    ETA: Can I change my mind again? At 11 weeks, it may still have some leg growth. I still say cockeral. [​IMG] Those are saddle feathers.
