    I bought 6 chicks from this lady who sold them to me as Ameracauna pullets. Well 3 out of the 6 turned out to be roosters...haha. and this one doesnt even look like an Ameracauna. She's always been a bit bigger and has no beard or muffs. Do you all think she is a hen? She makes a weird cawing sound but acts like a hen. Hope she is, good grief!

    No idea what breed, it is probably a mix. (no beard)

    Still looks like an Easter Egger to me. I breed non bearded EEs, folks around here prefer them without beards :)

    And your non bearded bird is a cockerel. Pullets dont get those rust red patches...

    Wow, i had a gut feeling about this. I sure wish i had the contact info for this woman i bought them from. So unhappy right now. 4 out of 6...and she told me she had sexed them all. :-(

    sorry about that, sucks. I've had it happen to me a lot, wrong breeds, one time all 4 of mine were wrong breeds! Worst part about raising chickens has to be waiting until you know 100% boy or girl, atleast IMO.
