Blue Americaunas pullet? Or roo? I find this breed to be hard to tell apart sometimes.

    She is approximately 2 months old. She is very skittish and was slightly aggressive when younger but it was more of a scared aggression never a dominant aggression. I just got rid of a roo about the same age if that matters. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Looks like a pullet to me but a good comb shot would confirm.

    It looks a lot redder in this pic, I don't think that there are three defined rows. I don't think it is really red in person just slightly pink and it turned seems to change color.

    Cockerel. The comb is just too pink. Pullets don't start to pink up until after 14 weeks old. And you can see that he is starting to get a darker shade of blue through the shoulder area and on the back, and in the tail. Pullets are more uniform in coloring, without any 'dark' spots.
