    Peanut is from the Aruacana/Americauna/pullet bin. Are all of these things wrong? I am sure two of three are. :) I think 5 of my 6 might be roosters. They are 9.5 weeks old.

    You have several Easter Egger pullets. I see no 'for sure' cockerels.

    Americana is hatchery speak for Easter egger. They are the exact same bird. Not a breed just a type

    Araucana in the US have no tails

    Ameraucana is a real breed but only come certain colors and have muffs and beards here in the US

    I really like Peanut! I also like Red, and the big boy here....the legs are huge and (s)he is larger than the others... These guys look okay? My cream leg bar rooster is crowing and he was born the same day. I wanted him to be the only boy!![​IMG]

    Legbars crow early. My oldest started crowing at 7 weeks but my Barnevelder did not til 10/11 weeks and he still barely crows at 14 weeks

    Peanut is a pullet. Actually, I don't see any that are screaming cockerel.

    I'm with everyone else...can't say one way or another. Nothing screams roo or hen. Any bumps (aka soon to be spurs) developing on his legs? That's always an early tell (after the early comb development). In the end time will tell, but waiting stinks!
