    Sorry, I can't help you with the age but by the looks of it she is definitely a she! If she was a male then she would have a much more pronounced comb & wattles. :)

    As with the breed, I honestly don't think i'll be much help with that but she looks like such a familiar breed to me. It might just be the tail though. But whatever kind of bird she is, She sure is pretty!

    I'm going to be honest with you. I thought she was an EE & even looked up pictures because I thought that was what she was, but she doesn't have the beard. But then again she's still young. :)

    That's probably what she is then!

    I'm not super good with Ameraucana's, but she really looks female to me.

    She's definitely a hen. At that age it would be easy to tell if it was a rooster. And "Easter Egger" is kind of a cop out guess, though. There's no standard for EE, so they can really look like anything. She's likely a mixed breed (which still might make her and EE because they are a mixed breed, with or without the beard).
