I got my first successful chickens in March 2010 and they're about 20-30 weeks right now. I've been noticing a very strange behavior. My two Americaunas have been jumping up and down and repeatedly striking at each other. I do not know the sexes yet, but could one of them be a rooster?

99% sure your avatar is a pullet ; and its an EE , not an Ameraucana . As already stated , both sexes spar for flock status .​

Your Americauna looks like my EE. My EE was advertised as an Americauna, but through research, I discovered her true EE status. She's lovely and produces beautiful blue/green eggs.

My Rhodies and EE exhibit the same body-slamming behavior. Nobody gets hurt, and they don't appear irritated, so I don't get too excited about it. They kinda look like schoolboys on a playground, which makes me laugh at them. Anyway, I wouldn't be too bothered by it, provided there are no wounds or injuries

I'm not worried about them pecking at each other, i just need to find out if one of them is a rooster. I'm not allowed to have roosters, so i would need to get rid of it.
