    Can anyone tell me why one of my chicks (supposedly Ameraucana) has a significantly longer and less bushy tail than the other 5 in my flock? They're Ideal Poultry Ameraucanas, I hope this is not the first telltale signs of a boy... they are now two weeks old.

    First one looks like a little roo to me, but it really is too young to tell.
