    Hey everyone!

    We bought some chicks that were supposed to be pullets. The Ameraucana seemed to grow way faster than the other two and I'm not sure if she is a he. I know it might be too early to tell (They are about two months old) But I thought I'd post some pics and see what y'all think.

    The one in question is in the middle. It used to be the same size as the one in front.

    To me, it looks like a pretty pullet, I don't see any wattle or much color in the comb. I also don't see any orangey patches on her feathers.

    I’d say pullet. The body size doesn’t make a huge difference, it would mainly be the comb color and size that’s a giveaway. But for now it seems like a female.

    Pretty pullet. :)
    Also, your girl is a lovely Easter Egger, rather than an Ameraucana. More often than not, the former is mislabeled as the latter. :)

    Another vote for pullet and I agree with what Alexandrea33 says, most "Amerucanas" are actually Easter Eggers labeled as such to get more attention. But EE are lovely just the same!!

    Thanks everyone! It was more her rapid growth that threw me off to think she might be a male. She's like a weed!
    And no matter that she's an easter egger. We love her no matter what she is
