    The comb on this one is small and flat but I was noticing the neck feathers look skinnier and more pointed than the other Amerucana we have. I was wondering if this means it's a rooster. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Would need to see the comb to confirm. Looks like a pullet from this end.

    Definitely a pullet, based on coloring.

    That's a pullet.

    That feather pattern creates an optical illusion. The feathers themselves are nice and rounded, but the coloring draws the eye to a point and makes them look pointy. Catch her and lay a sheet of paper under the feathers, you'll see they're round.
