    I have 2 questions, just as topic would suggest, what gender and breed:

    I know 1 is a girl - has been laying eggs for a couple of weeks. Not sure about the other one. No eggs, but no crowing either. It's comb is larger, it's skinnier and a little unsure about the saddle feathering. Also, are they Ameraucana's or EE's?

    The one in the front is the gender in question, Nala in the back has layed eggs - very pretty blue!

    They look to be pure ameraucana's and you have a cockerel and a pullet.

    I agree with everyone else, and am also deeply deeply jealous that you have a breeding pair!

    I've had them both for over a month now. The one in the back is laying, but nothing from the one in the front. When do they usually crow? The guy I got them from said he would swap if it turned out to be a boy.

    I know some people just eat the extra roos they get, so it might not have been a good thing for my daughters to name that one Cena when we first got them. Sort of set it up.
