    @QueenMishaI was beginning to think that too. My mom keeps saying it looks like a girl to her. She resembles dad too much to say a girl.

    That looks like a Pullet to me......Wait it out.....I would.....Ameruacana and EEs when Cockerels, look totally like cockerels and have less tail feathers when young....Pullets have tails....I deleted my Ameruacana and EE cockerel photos or I would post one....

    Just wait.....I would...
