oh my GOODNESS. Tumblr's a rooster! So funny, that didn't even occur to me as a possibility, but that would explain a lot of things. Like, um, her crowing. I just thought that was an overenthused cluck, but I wasn't facing reality I think.

thank you for the reality check! I am now a more informed chicken haver! Will he get even bigger? He's 6 months old now, and his crow sounds...well, a bit inexperienced. But I hope he doesn't get much louder.....

if he has chicks with my current green-egg easter egger, is it a good possibility that they will lay blue or green eggs? I got 'her' as she was billed as an ameraucana at the farm store...I really want blue eggs! :)

anyway, thanks so much for the info.......thank goodness I am on this forum!

Tumblr will get probobly bigger... my RIR rooster is 8 months and still growing. If he was crossed with a EE the chicks will lay blue,green,pink, or tinted eggs. because they would be EE's. Tumblr is also not an americauna he is an easter egger! And A very pretty one as well!!

The blue egg gene is dominant so alot of his chicks (no matter what their mother is) should lay blue or green eggs!!

I sure hope roosters are allowed where you are because if he just started crowing... trust me... it will get alot louder and clearer...
