    I say girl based on the small comb and waddles.

    Looks like a pullet to me, and an EE not an ameraucana [​IMG]

    Really? The dude lied to me, okay like the gosling I stand corrected on the type. That makes me feel better I was so worried with the little knots on the back of their legs. Just noticed it and was freaking out

    Girls have the little knots too. Looks like standard coloring for an EE pullet to me as well. :)

    Yeah don't worry about those legs. I have a similar EE pullet that's 7 weeks old and she has very "manly" legs [​IMG]

    Most feed stores will sell Easter Eggers as Araucanas or Ameraucanas, because that's what the hatchery labels them as. The bloodlines are so diluted, though, that they're usually just glorified mutts, aka EE.
