    I bought her 13 weeks ago as a baby chick along with 2 others that looked a lot like her. Told they were ameracaunas. But over time she looks completely different! She is now black and white and the others are red and brown. At first I just thought she must be a different breed but now I'm wondering if it's possible I have a rooster?
    I'm new to all this. And am loving it.. But would like to know what I have here. As much reading as I do I'm still torn. I don't see any saddle feathers pointing, neck feathers still seem rounded but she wend from brown/red to black and white with shiny black arodecent green tail feathers.. And her comb is much darker than the others... But there again she looks completely different all together.
    What's your opinion?

    I agree, that's an Easter egger cockerel.

    Hens do come in the silver and black color, and roosters do come in the brown/red color of your pullets. It's just random your rooster is different colored.
