She fit right in with the others and she's thriving. She's already been outside 2 warm days and loves to Peck around. Now I read the post above about the light ones being roos.. Yikes! I hope not. That would crush me. I can't have one in town. I'll fall in love and have to rehome! I see she has a little tail. I have been told that the girls get their tails before the boys do. I have 15 Ameraucanas that were a week old Monday. Nine had tails and 6 did not. One was actually questionable, but I am sure that I will know in a couple of months. You may have a pullet after all.
