    This "Ameraucana" chick is 6 weeks old. She is bigger, tail is longer and curves dowmward and comb is pinker than the other girls. Not to mention that the coloring/markings are different. I realize there are a lot of varities in color/markings for this breed, but have yet to find a pic that resembles this one. Anyone have any opinion of gender ir breed. Or is it just too early to tell?

    Wow, to me that looks kinda like a Royal Palm Turkey chick. [​IMG] I can't really tell, we haven't had a lot of Ameraucanas.

    My "guess" at this point is probably roo with me noticing the same things you already have. A little more time will tell for sure.
