    This was supposed to be an Ameracauna. Now the woman I got it from is saying olive egger??

    Is this just an Easter egger and is it a roo or hen?

    Thank you![​IMG]

    Definitely an EE, and I'm thinking maybe cockerel?

    Darn it. Positive? Or should I still give a little more time? Can only keep one too so I've got a decision to make soon. Ugh

    I would wait a smidgen longer until you start seeing those long, flowing hackle and saddle feathers. [​IMG] I jumped the gun once and gave away a stunning EE because "he" started getting red shoulder patches.....only to find out I let go of the most uniquely colored, beautiful pullet I've ever seen.

    That's an EE. As for gender, I'm not certain. How old is it? It's color and pink comb is making me think male but then again... [​IMG]I guess you'll have to wait it out.
