    My Ameracauna is three and a half months old, looks like a hen, but has a prolonged deep cackle. A Rhode Island ed is decidedly a male and has found his voice. What do you think about the Ameracauna?

    If you're worried that you have a rooster, you could post some pictures. [​IMG]

    You need to post a picture for us to sex the bird. Ameraucana hens make the same sounds as every other hen-they cackle, they growl, they whine, etc, just like the males do.
