    Iam brand new to this and bought 3 bantams, 2 buff op, and one americauna (though after reading on this site it may be EE). I am thinking my Americauna is a rooster based on info in the forum. Can someone please verify for me? I would greatly appreciate the info.[​IMG][/IMG]

    At 12 weeks my rooster had a very distinguishing comb. And he was learning to crow. I personally believe you have a hen.

    Each rooster crows at a different time.That cherry red comb at 12 weeks,I would say cockeral.Keep in mind,Easter eggers combs do not get very large.Is this chick cocky?

    That one got big first, feathers first, and has always been more assertive than the silkie bantams but I wasn't sure if it because he was the only one that is supposedly americauna.

    I would say that it is a rooster but that is just my opinion. Does it have any red on it's shoulders?
