    I've posted this chicken a few times for sexing. It's a mystery to us. No crowing we've heard, but is very dominating and always has been. 3 pea rows, comb was red very early. Is about 17 weeks. Purebred Ameraucana splash.

    Pretty pullet! I see no boy shiny feathers. But lots of rounded girl feathers!

    Pullet. Your chicken has rounded saddle feathers. At this age, the saddle feathers of a cockerel would be pointed.
