    As far as I know an Ameracauna, been researching and it looks more like an EE, 12 week old bird Cheetah
    -no spurs
    -tail feathers point upward, like my leghorn girl
    -tiny comb that just barely has a pink tint
    I've never raised chicks before so I don't know what age they start to get certain features, but I'm also not too familiar with what a hen of this breed will look like. Thanks for the help fellow BYCer's!!

    Definitely a pullet!

    Easter Eggers can be sexed by color (your bird is actually an Easter Egger, which is basically the hatchery version of an Ameraucana). She has classic female coloring. [​IMG]
