    Any guesses on our 'happy feet'? Roughly 3 months old, we think.

    *Edited to reflect the fact that we now know s/he is an EE (thanks to you guys!). [​IMG]

    Little difficult to tell from your pictures, but i will have to say looks very much like on of my Pullets when she was younger. A picture that shows her from the side would be better.

    The comb looks boyish... But like JPHorvath said, a side picture would be extra helpful. [​IMG]

    The 3 rows of peas on the comb make it look like a roo....but I don't think that is always the case. Body looks like a pullet to me.
    I vote pullet (I am only right half of the time) [​IMG]

    Boy, I'm almost 100% sure of it. Those brownish tinged feathers on the wings say roo and the comb is pretty pink. I also believe that is technically an Easter Egger, not a true Ameraucana...the green legs give it away. True Ameraucanas have slate colored legs (no yellow) because they are white skinned. The greenish leg color happens when you have a cross with a yellow skinned chicken. Someone please correct me if I am way off base, but from everything I have been reading about Ameraucana/EEs since I got my chickens leads me to this conclusion. [​IMG]

    I think it's a boy - watch that red/orange coming out. I had a pretty blue EE that had the same thing - turned into a big ol boy even with a pullet body shape to start. [​IMG]

    My first thought was that it is a boy. I'm sticking to that.

    Here's my EE roo at about 10 weeks. Dead giveaways - the orange coming in and the pink three row comb.

    That bird turned into this (20 weeks):

    What a difference a few months makes, eh? [​IMG]
