    I purchased 2 Americauna's when they were to young to tell their sex. I have never had Americauna's before. I have assumed they were hens this whole time. But now my golden one is jumping on my other hens and is even getting a little more aggressive in the last few weeks. They still ate not laying but I have not heard them crow either. We purchased a blue Asian as well and now I'm questioning the sex of this one as well. The picture with all 3 was taken a few months ago when they were first introduced to the rest of my chickens. These 3 were bought at the same time. Please let me know what you think. Hens or roosters? Thank you! [​IMG]

    Sorry to say, but both the white and brown EEs are cockerels :( And I'm pretty sure that the third bird in your first picture is as well.

    Agreed. The pointed hackle feathers and presence of saddle feathers are features of roos.
