    Looks like a cockerel with that much comb development at 5 weeks.

    Still early to tell, possible boy based on comb and legs (they look pretty long) but no hackel or saddle feathers yet, but some don't get those till 12-20 weeks

    I can't find the pics right now but i had 2 (lavender orpingtons) 10 weeks apart in age the younger at 10 weeks was very clearly a male but the older at 20 wks was still debatably a female confirmed male about 2 weeks later.

    Nice little easter egger....not a true ameraucana, common mistepresentation in chicken sales.
    Gender is a bit iffy....comb is developing early, but not a characteristic 3 row pea comb of a cockerel. Did he/she exert themselves avoiding being caught forthe photo op.... that can cause a decent temporary coloring of th visible flesh like the comb

    I really hope she isn't a male but really seems like it is!
    Easter eggers are prettier anyway And its always tinted a little red.
