This chicken is a little over two months old. It was sold to me as an Americauna pullet. I'm thinking that the tail feathers are looking really long. Might be just disporportional, but others I've seen have very short tails at this age.

Between 8 and 12 weeks old, they molt their tails, which can make a pullet's tail look a bit like a roosters. True male feathering doesn't even begin to develop until about 10 weeks old.

Your bird is an Easter Egger, not true Ameraucana. Most definitely a pullet.

Rest easy, that's a girl. As stated, it's kind of a phase they go through, I think just to freak us out.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
