    Picked up this Ameracauna chick as a pullet that was a couple days old. I’m hoping it’s a pullet but there looks to be some pointed feathers that could be saddle feathers. As this is my first Ameracauna, I’m hoping it’s breed similarity thing and not a sign of a rooster.

    Even if it is, it is the friendliest, dog-like chicken I have ever seen.

    Thanks!

    I think I spy the start of the infamous red patches of death, therefore, cockerel is my guess. :) Also, he's a very handsome Easter Egger, which are often mislabeled as Ameraucanas. :D Gorgeous birds, though!
