    I have one Ameraucana chick and one white leghorn I believe. Both are 8 weeks old. They are very friendly and will fly up into my lap! So cute! The leghorn was dyed pink which is ironic bc now we think she is a he. We can't keep a rooster where we live so we need your help! I really think its a boy though...

    Quote:I would say so! The leghorn has quite the comb and wattles going. That's why I say roo. The ameraucana doesn't show signs of either, so I say hen!
