    Hello everyone! My family and I got our first chicks about four months ago. We got 5. 2 ameraucana and 2 black sex links. The man we got them from also had a few yellow chicks. He wasn't sure of the breed so gave us him/her for free! As they've grown the yellow one has turned white and shows many signs of a rooster. Please let me know if you can identify the breed and if it's a male or female. He/she crows every morning and night super loud! But doesn't have spurs ect. Thank you :)[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It looks like a White Ameraucana or Easter Egger rooster to me.

    I don't have any good recent ones but I'll get some tomorrow morning. I've done so much research and haven't been able to figure out the breed. Also, is it true that if you have all hens, one may take on the role of a rooster? Some things about it make us thinks it's a rooster but not 100% on top of it all...recently when we let them out in the morning it attacks one of our black sex link chicken.

    Either a White Easter Egger or a White Ameraucana, rooster.

    X3 on that. Can you post a picture showing the legs. If it is a true Ameraucana, the legs will be slate blue. Otherwise, you have an Easter Egger rooster.
     
  7. It looks like a true Ameraucana to me. I would have to see the legs to be sure.

    I agree that it's a definitely a Amiracouna, or Easter egger. It looks like a hen to me, but it's hard to tell. a tail shot will help.
