    Within the last week, one of the chickens in my flock has started to crow in the early morning. And by flock I mean my three chickens! I am trying to determine which one it is and I suspect it is Olive(r), my Ameraucana. The crown on it's head is thicker and its feathers, especially the tail, is very shiny. (s)he is somewhat bossy, most certainly the "alpha." I have attached a few photos of the Ameraucana and a photo of each of the Buff Orpington and the Barred Rock. I am pretty sure the other two are
    female. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Sorry about the number of photos!!!!

    Your Easter Egger ( not Ameraucana ) is definitely the crowing culprit! He's all boy.

    No doubt the EE is a cockerel.
