I have 7 Ameracauna (or really, I think Easter Egger) chicks, almost 7 weeks old now. I'm hoping they're all pullets, but I'm beginning to think our one black and white named Princess Leia (by my Star Wars crazed boys) is actually a rooster. I've been reading lots of sexing threads as I'm brand new to all of this, and while "he" does have thicker legs and is a little more gangly than the others, and he seems to have a much more pronounced comb, he doesn't seem to have any color going on (like splashes of red) on his shoulders, or wings. What do you all think? My plan is to keep him until he starts crowing, but I can't have roosters in my town, and we'll be sad to see him go!! When do they start crowing? The second photo is just to show you what all my other chicks look like at this point, beautiful red browns! I love my chickens.
