I'm 99% sure I've got a surprise roo but wanted to verify first. "She" is supposed to be an EE pullet.

With the (known) Barred Rock cockerel

Rural King. I know it wasn't their fault though. I literally took him from the box that said EE pullets on the shipping papers haha

That comb is looking roo to me, but i've heard there's a lot that have larger combs but still turn out to be pullets...
I have about 8 chicks i'm raising right now as well and i'm fairly certain that one is most certainly a roo and another is still up in the air...typically won't know for sure until about 4 months is my understanding when they should start to be laying


good luck! :jumpy

@harmesonfarm I'll keep my fingers crossed but I'm not holding my breath haha "She" just looks so markedly different than the other 3

I'd be suspect too, though the comb isn't really that pink or red.  I've had a few that I was almost positive were roo's over the years that turned out to be hens.   The barred rocks get me a lot, some of them seem to develope rather young.

Not sure about Rural King but Tractor Supply has them all as pulleys but they are unsexed.

Looks like a cockerel, and with a single comb too. Can you get a better picture of the comb on your other EE?

And the one in question
