what breed? What gender? EE?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Tara Rose, Jun 21, 2010.

  1. I bought her as an Ameraucana, and I am not sure that is what she is. Also I assume she is a hen but maybe a roo? He name is Toni, because she is missing a toe, but a easy switch to Tony for a male.

    It's hard to tell from the picture but the comb appears to be pretty large so I am guessing EE roo. How old is he?

    Definitely an EE, but looks like a pullet to me.

    I say roo, based on the comb and a very sneaky tail feathers poking out...
  5. I think about 4 months old, here is a picture from behind

    That is a lot of comb, i'd be surprised if it's not a roo.
  7. Thanks everyone, I have no one to compare her to. It is easier when you raise a few of the same breed together. She/he started out with my silkies and was non aggressive with the other roos. I have since sold my silkies and moved her/him in with some younger birds and now I am not so sure. They all get along fine no aggression and she seems protective, at first I thought mother hen, but now I am thinking man of the house. I will try to get a better picture of her comb
