My 8 week old ameraucana, has been developing a slightly bigger and more colorful comb, than some of my other chicks. Also, the tail was very slow to grow, and it is growing in a curved shape. Most of the time the tail is hidden by its wings. I am hoping that the ameraucana doesn't turn out to be a male....!
Thank you! Below is a picture

That is too bad...I did have a very strong suspicion of it though. Thank you

I agree it's a cockerel, not an Ameraucana, but definitely an Easter Egger. He has a comb that shows he's not pure for the pea comb gene, maybe a single comb ancestor in there. I'm saying it's not a true pea comb, but what many of us call a "combo comb".

ETA: He's certainly colorful! I bet he'll be a handsome rooster.

Yes, after reading a bit about the difference between the two I realized he is an Easter Egger as well.
Thanks!
