Really hard to tell from that picture. Can you get a close-up?

Ok.. close up of face..he/she is a few weeks younger than the other one if that matters. The comb is still pale pink like the other one, but I can't remember what the other one's tail looked like at this stage.
Thanks

I don't know, it is hard to tell by a pic. If I had to venture a guess I would say pullet, but ameraucanas are often hard to tell because of the pea comb. Let them grow a while and look for saddle feathers sprouting.

Thanks, it does still hold the tail the same way the other one does so I am hoping....

They way to tell on these is feel the comb if it is detached at the back it is a rooster a hens comb does not have a place that you can lift up I am talking of the back of the comb. You can feel it loose back there if it is a roo. the hens just slant off to the head.

Well it's trying to crow I think...if it talks like a rooster it must be one, huh?

Haha, yeah i guess it is possible. I have heard of hens crowing, but of all of the birds I have ever had, I haven't had it happen.
