    It is a 9-1/2 week old pullet but her looks are suspicious to me and some others. We don't really know but would like some other opinions. She has not exhibited any aggressive behaviors, very quiet, and mellow. Hasn't crowed (yet). [​IMG]

    Can someone help?

    Thank you.

    Hope she is a pullet...Thank you for the compliments. She is a gorgeous one, outshines her sis, "Martha Stewart," another americauna.

    Her tail and feathers are suspicious looking but she may just have good genes. [​IMG]

    Here she is (left) with her sis, Martha (right):

    Still a bit early.

    I'm thinking pullet at this point.

    Looks just like my EE hen. Green legs and all. They often look a bit roo like to me. But they sure are good looking birds [​IMG] My guess would be a pullet.

    Does "she" have cheek muffs? If she does, its probably a pullet.
    If not, then its a cockeral. I couldn't quite tell from either picture.
