    Hi I got these 2 birds from a friend a few months ago she thought they were hens at the time but they have proven different! Just heard them both crow today! She said they were a farm mix with amaracauna and something else any idea what the something else would be and is it even Americauna?[​IMG]

    Those have been obvious cockerels for some time. They could be Easter Egger mixes, or mixes of mixes.

    Neither have true Ameraucana in them. More likely Easter Egger mixes. The second one looks more like a Brahma mix.

    I always say "Beware of friends baring chickens." Sorry - You can bet they will be roosters.
