    4mo Easter Egger, no idea what the mix is, somewhere there is ameraucana that's all I know. They were sold to me as Ameraucanas. When they were younger I was told all were pullets, but I have gone back and forth with my doubts on Tiny. She has not crowed or given any sign to indicate cockerel.

    I took pictures today and got as many angles as I could.

    she's far right

    hopefully these pictures are good enough, she's hard to get good pictures of so I took a bunch quickly.

    That's a pullet. Males with gold/red coloring always get dark red patches on their shoulders. Her pattern is even and fairly uniform, all over her body.

    Tiny is definitely a pullet. :)

    Just wanted to be sure, her tail is different than the other girls. I figured if she wasn't a she "he" might not crow because my Oreo is a docile but dominant rooster. Any guesses on what she's mixed with?

    She looks like a hatchery Easter egger to me, so she's probably not "mixed" with anything, but from a long line of Easter eggers.

    By the way, that tail feather that had you thinking it might be a cockerel is just a tail feather about to molt out. Nothing to be concerned about.

    It's been like that a while, I wish it would come out already then lmfao

    Yea, she's a hatchery EE. They were sold to me as Ameraucanas, I later found out they were from a hatchery and EE.

    Oh, and I've had them since day olds. I bought them when they were just weeeeeeee little ones. It's been so amazing to watch them grow! Tiny is a biter though, and she needs to quit that!
