    Was told Ameraucana pretty new to chickens!! When I google this breed they seem to have lots of tufts on their faces and this one doesn't have any of that

    The tail feathers are just now coming back I dealt with some pecking issues early on with a few other hens by separation and the peepers

    It's a rooster for sure. Likely an Easter egger---some are clean faced instead of having the beard/muffs.

    Yeah, that pecking was probably mating behaviors.
