    Is this male or female? Voice sounds different from my pullets, feather colors make more sense for cockerel too. Really red comb as well. It is a little over 3 months old, blue Wheaton ameraucana according to seller.[​IMG]

    That is an Easter Egger pullet. And that coloring is all wrong for wheaten.

    Looks like a pullet, but I can't see the comb.

    After 3 months old, the comb is supposed to start turning pink. The more red it gets, the closer she is to laying.
