My flock consists of many different breeds. We have 1 Barred Rock, 1 Silver-Laced Wyandotte, 3 Buff Orpingtons, 6 definate Ameracaunas, 1 Columbian Rock Cross (I believe), 2 Partridge Cochins, 1 silver-laced Cochin, 1 Golden-laced Cochin, 1 Blue Cochin, 2 Rhode Island Reds, and one unknown chicken. 3 chickens are older, and then there are 6 that are recent layers, and then 11 have not started laying yet. The chicken we do not know what the breed/sex is is in the batch that hasn't started laying yet. 6 of that batch was bought from a feed store, and there was a small selection of breeds to choose from. We were told this chicken was a Barred Rock (it was in the Barred Rock bin when came in). However, it didn't have the typical yellow spot on it's head, and it looked to have dark legs. As the feathers came in, and as it started to grow, there was a significant size difference at first (also obvious that is was NOT a Barred Rock). The others have since caught up to it. It's body seems to be black, and the neck, and shoulders are a reddish brown color. It seems to have slate colored legs also, but has a few hairs coming through on it's legs. I'm leaning more towards an Ameracauna that got put in the bin. They were all supposed to be pullets, but we know how that goes. It's comb is very much different than the other Ameracaunas, not exactly a pea-lick comb. Also, it is getting wattles. I thought it had spurs coming in, but haven't noticed any significant growth recently, but it's legs seem thicker than the chicks of the same age. It was born somewhere around the 3rd week in May of this year, so is roughly 4 months old. No crowing yet. I don't believe I am able to post a picture yet... and besides do not have any good pictures of it yet. I will have to take some better photos later this weekend. What does it sound like to you? Oh, it does not have a "muff and beard" like typical Ameracaunas do, but one of my pullets does not either. Was told they sometimes have the Aracauna trait and get ear tufts instead, but the pullet is definately Americauna as it was bought from a reputable breeder in my area.
