    Could you get a close-up photo of its comb? With these photos, I'm thinking pullet.

    I agree. Also, it is an Easter Egger as opposed to a true Ameraucana.

    [​IMG] Thank you for that info. Thought that might be the case. Got them from our local Agway, so I had my doubts about whether an EE or an Ameraucana. Here are two pics of her front - not much of a comb yet.

    You're welcome. And that single row of peas in her comb just reinforces my thought that it's a pullet.

    I could kiss you for helping to ease my mind, but this will have to suffice.[​IMG]

    Could you post a more recent picture of your bird? Yours looks almost identical to our four week old and I would love to see what she is going to look like. We were told from the hatchery that she was an Ameraucana, but we quickly learned from here about Easter Eggers. Thank you in advance.

    Didn't have a real close-up, but I cropped the pic you see in my avatar. She is on the far left. Here is the same picture that I cropped for you. The pullet next to her is a red-laced wyandotte. Hope this helps!
