Hello,
I’m new to the Ameraucana Breed and I’m hoping some experienced folks out there could help me determine the sex of this chick. (She’s) 6 1/2 weeks old. Her companion there is a columbian rock pullet.

What you have is an Easter Egger. I’m on the fence as to whether it’s a cockerel or pullet. I’d have to say pullet but that could change in a couple of weeks. Could you post back with an update later?

Just added some pictures of feathers from different areas. I really want her to be a hen but like so many others on here I fear we got a rooster. Which isn’t such a bad thing as long as he doesn’t bother the neighbours. Also the hatchery that sent a batch to the feed store advertises ameraucanas, they were significantly more expensive than the Columbians, the clerk at the feed store reports pure bread, the spelling is correct on both advertisements but Ruby (maybe Robby) here has more green feet than blue and her colour is a mix between blue and silver so that makes her an Easter Egger right?
I didn’t even know this breed existed and now I’m obsessed 😜 lovely friendly bird.
