Here is one of my Ameracaunas.
I am leaning toward hen, but how old is it?
About 16 weeks old.
Those look like the beginnings of a rooster tail there. Some hens have slightly curved tail feathers, but those look curved and greener than the rest. Also the feathers on the back look a bit pointed. Can you post next to a few others of the same age, or is this one the only one in the group of this breed?
There are seven of them that I hatched at the same time. If I have time i will get some pictures posted tomorrow.

I also agree on rooster.
It must be different than the others you hatched or you wouldn't ask....
Can you post a pic of another one?
It looks like a pullet to me - I think a 16 week old cockerel should have a larger comb than this one has and the feathers are rounded. The greenish tint is there because of the black feathering - doesn't have anything to do with the sex. My black sexlink, barnevelder, and australorp hens all have that greenish tint on their black feathers.
No, I gotta say it's a roo.
