So after 4 months....I've got a rooster!! lol. Not sure how I missed it though. Well lets be honest....I do know how. When I bought my americaunas back in May the guy picked the "odd" looking one and I guess I figured she/he would look weird and not like my other standard americauna (this is the first year i've ever had chickens.... so its a whole new ballgame I actually have my first finally laying!!). Anyways, to be honest he didn't start looking like a rooster until the past few weeks when his sickle and hackle feathers were real obvious. I awoke to my boyfriend prodding me this morning going; "babe...did you hear that?" as he let out a short pathetic crow. I actually have heard it sporadically over the months-- but I figured it was my oldest hen imitating the rooster down the road. in the first image from June (2 months old or so) he is the 3rd one from the front. He still looks like a hen! and here are both of the americaunas. I bought them at the same time so you can see why I'd thought he was a "mutt" compared to my other brown generic hen.......he'd looked different his whole life. and here is my big boy now in September! He is significantly larger than my hens. i feel silly having missed this for so long but i'm still learning. anyways we've decided to keep him even though everyone keeps saying "say goodbye to your sanity" and "stewpot him now before he gets stringy".
