Is this an EE and a Roo?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This is my hopeful lady, Joanna Gains. She/he is only about 3.5 weeks old so it's probably too early, and was hatchery sexed but she is definitely different from the other 3 babies I got at the feed store with her. I picked 4 different breeds since this is my first experience with chickens and wanted a "grab bag" to see what I liked, but now I don't have anything to compare them to! Also not sure she/he is an EE?! Anyone know sex or gender or have a guess just for the heck of it??[IMG]

It's a little to young to sex (maybe in a couple of weeks) but I would say it is a EE.

Yes it is an Easter Egger and it is too young to tell the gender, but many times the ones with white wing patches are males. sad.png

That's what I was noticing too, the males seem to have more patches and less consistent patterns. Bummer! I'll keep my fingers crossed though! I will have to find a home if she is in fact a he and a get a few new chick.

It's hard to tell by the picture, but it looks like your chick may be developing a single comb, which would mean it wouldn't be an EE.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

There are Easter Eggers with single combs because they are a mix, but it is unlikely that they carry the blue egg gene. smile.png
