    I have an 11 week Ameraucana "pullet" but I'm not sure anymore. New to chickens but she's starting to look like a roo?[​IMG]

    The comb looks pretty red and the tail feathers look very droopy so I would guess rooster. Check to see if he/she has any saddle feathers. I hope this helps:)

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Most certainly a cockerel.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I usually suggest posting on the breed / gender forum, but the experts here are unanimous!

    Best wishes

    Thank you all for your responses. Unfortunately I agree with cockerel too[​IMG]. I was thinking it but was holding on to hope for my hen.
