    We recently bought 2 ameraucana chicks and they're about 4 weeks old. One seems very passive and more hen-like. The other is more aggressive and "wilder". It's illegal for us to have a rooster where we live, so we would like to know what signs we can look out for. What are tell-tall rooster signs in ameraucanas? These aren't our first chickens, but our first ameraucanas.
    Thank you! :jumpy

    Three rows of "peas" and redness in the comb.

    At six to eight weeks, cockerels will have bigger, redder combs. Also, depending on where you purchased these, there are most likely Easter Eggers.
