    This is a wyandotte, its comb is a lot larger than the other 2 and has more red to it[​IMG]
    These 2 are Jersey giants[​IMG][​IMG]
    This is an Ameracuana, it crowed once in the coop, but I was told a hen will crow sometimes.[​IMG]

    I think the JG Roos and Hens have green in their plumage. I know the Australorps do. I would guess they are roo's by their combs.

    If the last picture is a true Ameracauna AND a male, shouldn't it be a different color by the time it crowed? I'd say it's an EE or a blue wheaten female Ameracauna...but you should try someone on the Ameracauna thread....

    Thanks, out of 11 having 5 possible roos aren't good odds.
