    Could you show a picture of the tail or describe it? It's very pretty, but I think EEs are hard to sex based on the usual criteria. I have an EE pullet with a comb that looks like this, and a second "pullet" with the same comb but a drooping rooster-like tail.

    It walks around with it's tail erect. it's rarely droopy. I'll try to get a better pic of it.

    From the feathers around her neck, I will say an EE (not Araucana) pullet. You won't get true Aurancanas at your local feed store.
