5 Week Old Roo or Hen??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've gotten mixed reviews from different sites. I bought "her" as an Ameraucauna and now was told she's an Easter Egger. Now people are telling me she's actually a "he". Thoughts? Hoping for a hen!!

The front bird is an Easter Egger, but I'm not seeing signs as male yet...the hackles might be a bit spiky, but she is in transition. Pattern looks even, comb small and pale.

 

EE pullet at this point.
