    This is my Americana, Striper. I am thinking she might be a he. What are your thoughts?

    The yellow and black one is a pullet, and the white and black one is a cockerel. They are both Easter Eggers.

    Striper is definitely a cockerel. He is actually an Easter Egger (most hatcheries sell "Americanas" or "Ameraucana/Araucanas", but they are really just Easter Eggers).

    The small yellow one is a Sicilian Buttercup. Her name is Spotla, and I knew she was a Pullet. These 2 tend to stick together, so getting a picture of Striper alone is not an easy task. My daughters named them. It was marketed as an ameracauna, but either way, we love him, her, it! I also have a lovely black one named Scary Pumpkin... also named by one of my daughters.

    Striper is a handsome cockerel.
