    You’ll be able to tell more about her tail around 12 weeks. Her comb is DEFINITELY indicating pullet; completely different breed but here’s a photo of my freshly 12 week old black copper marans cockerel and his two pullets. His copper is just now coming in strong on his shoulders and his hackles and saddle feathers are starting to show male feathering as well, but up until maybe a week and a half ago the only solid indicator was his comb.

    Pancake is a pullet.

    Baby tails look like baby tails, they can be all kinds of funny shapes on their way to their grown bird appearance.

    Because Amberlinks are wing sexed, feathering speed while young IS a valid indicator for them but she's already past that point.

    Considering her age and the lack of a big red comb, I am confident you have a pullet.

    It's likely that these olive eggers got their blue egg gene from a crested cream legbar or Araucana instead of or in addition to any ameraucana they may have in them and that's why they have the crest you're referring to.

    I had a crested cream legbar and my olive egger looked exactly like her!

    I told the person that I gave the crested cream legbar to that I think my olive egger is part crested cream legbar. The only difference is their comb and the tail which is getting more full on my olive egger as she gets older.

    It makes me excited that you just said that because I really loved the look of my crested cream legbar, she just didn't fit with my flock. IMG_20190414_132012~2.jpg IMG_20190414_131750~2.jpg
