    The Wyandotte in the back is about 20 weeks I was a little worried before because of her/his height. The picture is a little misleading, it's legs are a good 1.5" taller than the Americauna but their bodies are similar. Both are the same age. . The last two days I have been woken up at 5:30 with might be a young crow. All of our other hens are very vocal and lay first thing in the morning so I didn't think much of it yesterday, but two days makes me nervous. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Sorry to say that's definitely a cockerel. The "Americauna" is actually an EE, and definitely female.
