I have four 21 week old Ameraucanas who have not laid an egg yet, but I'm thinking they should soon. I have 24 chickens in all with 2 RIR roosters. It's a mixed flock of various breeds including RIR, Leghorns, BR, Sex-links (black and gold) and EEs. I've been moving about half the chickens to a separate pen (one roo per pen) and one of my Ameraucanas got frantic over in the other coop. She was running back and forth and ur-ur-uring and so, I picked her up and put her in the other pen. She calmed down, but still held her head up high and kept making the ur-ur-uring noise. When another bird approached, she dropped to the ground and looked like she was presenting herself for breeding. She's kind of the bottom of the pecking order and a sweet bird, but has no tail feathers because the other birds pulled them. (She's the only bird who has this happen) She's not injured or pecked, but I can't help wonder if she wants to stay away from the other (more aggressive) roo. She literally hopped into my hands when I opened the pen to take her out. So, what's going on? Is she getting ready to lay? Have I a stealth roo as an Ameraucana? Does she just want to be with her other buddies that I moved?
