Why a light from 6 AM to 4 PM, isn't is already light during that time? Well, maybe not at 6 AM, at least not here.
On the light - their coop is pretty shaded by trees and dark inside and when I first started them out there as 5 week olds I had a light on a timer during the day - they seemed to be happier and less scared with the light on. And I just left it on the timer because they won't go in at night if the light isn't on. Silly spoiled chickens. It's a low watt LED light, no heat.

I vote pullet on this one as well.

Never give up. While we still live there is hope. With God all things are possible.

Well I just am not good guessing!  :-) Easter eggers and barnyard mixes.. I just had another from an older group of chicks "I am certain it is a Roo" lay an egg this morning.  :-) I cannot complain about more layers!  A black and white Easter egger roo will eventually find it's way to me.   Thanks guys!

That makes you about 1 in a million here! Most everyone says "PLEASE tell me this is a pullet" :D

LOL  Normally I am always hopeful for pullets, BUT I have one GIANT roo who is a sweet thing and for the  bigger ladies a good mate.  We got him because we figured if we had to cull excess Roo's we might as well breed them to be big for eating.  However, I have enough space(a few medium sized hen's including EE's) for another Roo, and thought this one has a good personality and isn't going to be big.   Plus when I thought it was a "roo" I was impressed with how well our current Roo was tolerating "it".. Now I know!  Our big roo tolerates it so well because it is a future member of his harem!  LOL
