    It was sold to me as an ameracauna pullet, but i'm starting to wonder... it's around 3 or 4 months.

    It's an EE and it has a single comb where's it should have a pea comb, it's possible it won't lay green/blue/pink, instead brown eggs because of single comb and also because it looks like it could be a cockerel!

    Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking. The comb is so red it makes me think cockerel.

    He looks like a cockerel to me too - and since he was sold as an Ameraucana you were already mislead by the source, so I would take the bird back and find a new place to do business.

    Agree he's a cockerel. Take him back and look for a pullet.
