We believe this chick is a cockerel as the comb has 3 rows. However, I'm wondering if this is a ameraucana? We got him from tractor supply, which I know that usually the chicks labeled as ameraucana aren't true ameraucanas, they are usually Easter Eggers. This one however looks different than the others. I kind of think it looks like a splash wheaten? Also if u think I'm wrong on the gender, let me know! 😁
For reference, he is about 6wks old
