hello chicken peeps, so i bought the following lovely chicken at the local feed/farm store back in june. she was billed as an ameraucana, and the label on the chick dispenser (for lack of better term) said "pullets - will lay greenish blue eggs." so i got a what i thought was a pullet who would eventually lay greenish blue eggs, right? and my whole conception of this chicken is that she is a she, and i've been anxiously awaiting the commencement of the laying as she's about that age at this point. HOWEVER. yesterday i posted a picture of tumblr in my blog, and a highly informed member of this forum told me without a doubt that SHE is a HE, and there will be no eggs! just beautiful rooster-being, crowings, and fertile eggs from the other ladies. i believe the forum member for sure, but because this is a major paradigm shift for me, i wanted to just get some confirmation from others. so....is tumblr a rooster, no doubt? it IS true that 'she' has been doing some strange things that the other hens don't do, like jumping up in the air with her claws extended and neck feathers all poofed. she did peck my elbow in a friendly but testing way yesterday. and, of course, what i was thinking was a very enthusiastic cluck may well be the first crows of a young, upwardly mobile cock. will he get bigger? will he be my best friend? will he protect the other ladies? will he get louder (i hope not)? what is the likelyhood that he will father eggs who become blue-egg-laying chickens? so many mysteries! i feel kind of silly.
