    Hey gang,

    Our white Ameraucana could possibly be an EE, but I'm concerned I might have gotten a roo. (This is our second round after going straight run and getting 6 out of 8 roosters in our flock :/ LOL tough lesson) so I feel like I'm on hyper alert. Luckily this one is from chickenville USA so we have a guarantee but I don't want to drive out to Terrell again! 'She' is displaying some 'roo-like' behaviors. Any help appreciated!!!!

    How old? I'm leaning towards rooster but like you I'm unsure.

    How old is it?? Is it close to laying? Because it looks kinda like a rooster to me right now with no other info. it looks like a rooster because of the comb and tail, but....

    Between 17-18 weeks. I know behaviorally what to look for - what physically will show up if he's a rooster? like waddle, beard-wise? I'm so new, thanks for helping!
