    I would tend to sy yes but I'm SO hoping NO.
    I'm a first time suburban chicken owner and have only 3. They are all about 13 weeks old.
    Each is a different breed. I believe this is a Americana?
    This beauty crowed a couple of times about a week ago and hasn't done so since.
    I see no Spurs but....
    I'll have to rehome if he is indeed a HE.
    Please help! [​IMG]

    Hi, Kathie, welcome to BYC. He was probably sold to you as an 'Americana or Ameraucana', but he is an Easter Egger cockerel.

    Thank you! I didn't want to rehome if at all possible. I have someone to take him and it does my heart good to know I'm doing the right thing.
