    mei is the one eating the plants. she is really odd (for a chicken), because she is so calm and has such a small tail. I noticed that popcorn is more bold and fast (and naughty) than mei. but they play so well together, they don't fight.

    Try showing a straight on image of the chicken in question. Where did you get them from? Eggs you hatched, feed store, another chicken keeper? The images aren't clear enough to say 100% one way or another.

    Sorry they are Easter Eggers, not Ameraucanas. And it looks like to me, it could be a roo. Better pictures close up and not blurry will help us ID the gender!

    Other than that, they are beautiful!

    OK I blew up the first pic and I am certain now, its a pullet. I do not see any pointed feathers near the tail head area.

    Looks like a pullet...Its hard sometimes with EEs... I had one who's comb was red at a young age. Thought she was a roo (because she had some pointed feathers instead of rounded) til she started to lay eggs.

    Easter Egger pullet, roosters can't be white w/a red face and breast.
