    HELLO I need some help. I bought these guys when they were 7 weeks old I was told the brown and rust color chickens were Americauna but pretty sure they are EE. My dilemma is I thought the rust color chicken was a rooster but the large dark brown and green chicken is making crow noises every morning this week. Which one us a hen or do I have 2 roosters? Please help I need to know so I can find him a new home no roosters allowed where I live

    The only one that looks like a rooster is the one with white speckles and the big red comb and wattles, the rest look like hens.

    Not the best shots for gender evaluation - but the Easter Egger (you are right on the "breed") appears to be a pullet. Your other bird is a cockerel.

    He's a nice looking rooster, at least you only have one to rehome. Some folks get stuck with several. Welcome to BYC.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined us.

    You have one pullet and a cockerel; the light brown bird is an Easter Egger pullet and the brown/greenish bird is a Speckled Sussex cockerel.

    I hope you can find a new home for the rooster!
