    I am very new to the chicken world. I picked up 4 Americauna chickens which I actually think are Easter eggers. The lady I bought them from thought the black one was a rooster and the white ones hens. I have read tons of information on how to tell the difference and I think I have 2 roosters and 2 hens. Any help would be greatly appreciated [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG]ight/400[/IMG]

    Definitely Easter Eggers, picture #1 and #3 are cockerels. Can you get better pictures of the ones in #2?

    I posted a pic of the black one too. I'm pretty sure he's a roo. Here is a better pic of the chicken In the 2nd pic. Sorry it's hard to get a good pic.[​IMG]
