    This is Sugar (white/wheaten), and "he's" 10 weeks old. I've determined that my 15 week olds Dominique, Buff Orpington and Rhode Island Red are pullets, but this one has me worried. Also curious if he is a legitimate Ameraucana or an Easter Egger? I bought him from a breeder, but the he also sells batches from a hatchery and this one was from a hatchery batch... Thanks for the help! Sugar is as big as my 15 week olds with as thick of legs and his tail feathers that have appeared are suspicious!

    Sorry For the bad photos, he is particularly skittish compared to my other 3 chickens, especially with the camera around.

    He's definitely an Easter Egger, and that big red blotch on his wing and saddle area is screaming rooster.
