    I have no idea. I am looking for your thoughts! the comb is not as red as my other EE- though the tail is long. Sorry for the poor photos-

    (Wow I feel stupid [​IMG]) anyway, I am going to say pullet for now. Those look like saddle feathers though, but the comb is not large or red enough to be a cockerel. So I'm only 75% sure.

    Your bird looks exactly like some EE pullets, reaching POL (I hope), I have. They were bought as 1 day old sexed pullets. I was sure one was a roo because of a long curved tail feather, but that fell out and she is definitely a girl.
    My EE's (have several older) have longer tails than some of my other breeds.)

    The pullet answers make me happy...I had 7 chickens...2 have died and out of the 5 left, 3 are roosters. :( I was afraid 4 were roosters-- so I am glad I can at least keep two of them.

    Looks like a pullet. Males usually get red spotchy coloring, and have three-row pea combs. Your bird does not have these characteristics.

    Looks like a pullet to me, though Easter Eggers can be tricky to sex.
