    I thought this was a hen but it continues to grow and is now larger than my RIRs. I also noticed it crows but it sounds a little different than my roosters crow. I guess i have seen it jump on other hens backs also. Maybe it is a rooster.

    rooster or hen? I think its Ameracauna or that's what the guy at swap meet said that I bought it from when it was young.[​IMG]

    Rooster, and its definitely not an Amerauncana. Maybe he is a mix that has EE or Ameraucana in it?

    Looks like a white Jersey Giant.

    Edited to add :
    Not likely an EE cross, even if the single comb beat out pea comb genetically speaking, I always have no wattle or small wattled EE crosses.

    I agree, looks to be a white JG, and is certainly a rooster. I see nothing that points to any ancestors being an ameraucana or an EE.
