    This chickie is 10 1/2 weeks old (or so I was told, the seller was incorrect about the ages of the others she sold me and also sold this one as an Americauna so the age may not be correct). I have had Pumpkin for 2 weeks and she's been feathered the entire time. She does still peep. [​IMG] I would guess pullet but the tail feathers stick up a lot! She can smooth them down, but almost never does!

    The EE looks like a pullet, is she acting like a rooster?

    These are my first chickens so I can't really say. I don't think so. She is a scaredy cat and hides behind the larger 2 constantly (getting pics of her is hard)! At night, when I close them in the coop, she literally climbs under/between the legs of the other pullets! LOL

    I have two that are 7 weeks, they look similar, I think mine are pullets also.
    So I vote pullet

    I also have one that looks just like yours....only a month older. Her tail feathers have always been up. When I posted pictures here a couple of weeks ago and everyone said pullet [​IMG] I was also worried about the tail feathers!
