    I was always wondering about this pullet. She was attempting to crow yesterday.

    That is an Easter Egger cockerel.

    What's the difference between an Americauna and an Easter Egger?

    What characteristics tell you it's a cockerel? I ask, because it looks similar to one of my other "Americauna Pullets".

    Ameraucanas are a pure breed, produced by breeders and adhering to the Standard of Perfection. Easter Eggers are a mutt with the ability to lay blue and green eggs, though some may lay brown.

    This bird has characteristic splotchy red, and saddle and sickle feathers which only males grow. The comb is large and red.

    Here are the other two. I have a bunch, but I'm unsure of what I thought were Ameraucanas.

    Also Easter Eggers. They both have some odd feathering, but I'd say those are both pullets.

    That's because she is a boy.
