    I am new to this thread, but not new to chickens, we recently moved to Oregon and I have a new flock. I really don't want Kellogg to be a rooster, but he is bigger and more colorful, however not crowing yet, Kellogg is 3 months old. Any ideas that you may have to decide if he is, I would appreciate,, :) Melissa

    Thank you, I kind of figured that but was hoping for a miracle, he is so pretty :) well we have one Easter egger left, and she is smaller and not as pretty, so I am sure she's a hen. We had one in California, I love the green egg shell color. :)

    Yes that is a rooster. Ameraucana's have more bluish legs, although some are more greenish blue. true Ameraucana's are hard to come by, so you probably have an Easter egger.
