    She sure looks like a pullet to me. Her comb is light pink instead of red and it is not very raised. Although pea combs in Ameraucanas do not mature as quickly as other combs types do and sometimes it takes a bit to determine pullet or cockerel especially when the color does not give it away. You should be able to see sickle feathers and a difference in the way it carries it's tail feather if it were a cockerel.

    Quote:I was worried because sometimes she carries her tail high and the black on her feathers make them look sickle but when I look at her closely they appear round just the black makes it look pointed...shes a very dark EE at least for a female I hope she turns out to be a she [​IMG] cuz its illegal to have a roo and shes like my fav!
