Hatched July 23rd. I believe to be an Americana. My first set of three chicks in May, 2 were roo's. The replacements have me thinking I might have a Roo again. If so, I must have the worst luck. lol. Feed store chicks.
Thanks for looking. What do I have?


The 4 photos are of the same 9 week old.

I personally based my guess on the amount of redness for a 9 week old, as well as a somewhat patchy coloration. I've seen where black and white EEs can be tricky, though, so I guess I'll just say I'd lean toward male on this one. I mainly just wanted to point out that it's not an Ameraucana. :oops:




ETA: This is more the pattern I expect from a black and white Easter-egger pullet: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/928274/11-week-ee-pullet
