    Hey guys!! I have what was sold to me as a pullet Auracana and now I am not so sure. We have had 2 from the 6 we bought turn out to be cockerels already. Anyone out there that can help?? I don't the breed is correct either! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Mixed breed cockerel. He may be an EE, but since he's not going to oblige you with an egg is't hard to say unless you test breed him.

    Yep cockerel. I think someone was unloading some unwanted cockerels. Do you see the dark red on the shoulders? The white tuft at the base of the tail? Those are rooster traits.
