    Hi, we're new to raising chickens, and are only allowed 3 hens in our city. We bought chicks in Sept, all different breeds, and unfortunately I think our ameraucauna is a rooster. He has not cro[​IMG]wed yet, but has the long pointy neck feathers and had gotten a couple of longer tail feathers. I've attached pictures. What do you think? I'd hate to give this one up unless we're certain it's a rooster, because its so pretty. Thanks.[​IMG][/IMG]

    Thank you for the response. Anyone near portland, OR want a pretty ameraucauna rooster, 4 1/2 months old, so far not at all aggressive, raised since a chick so tolerates being handled, even by our 3 year old, although not the easiest for her to "catch."
