    Hello, I thought this was a rooster but now I'm not sure. My chickens are 19 weeks old. He/She is an Ameraucana mix (the white one). What do you chicken experts think??? :/ :)[​IMG]

    My vote is for pullet too. I learned that pullets have tail feathers with nice rounded tips, like yours has. She also doesn't have much red on her beak and face, compared to the cockerels I have had.

    I'd say she's a pullet. Hope you aren't disappointed she's not a rooster.

    Wow! Thanks so much everyone!! I'm happy she is a she lol! I have 14, 5 week chicks in the house about to move outside. I'm excited I get to keep one of the baby roosters :) thank you all for feed back! I think I'll keep her name "geronimo" lol it suits her.
