    Hey Y'all.... I am in New Orleans and we have a pretty high feral chicken population here. I have a 9 week old rescued americauna, or easter egger maybe, not really sure. What matters to me is if it's male or female. I am growing so attached and am hoping I can keep it and eventually introduce them to my coop with 6 other hens age 9 months. I know it's early, but maybe someone here has a good eye.

    9 WEEK OLD MALE OR FEMALE?

    I'd guess it's a girl. At 9 weeks old, I'd expect to see at least see some color on the comb, if not size, if it were a boy.
