My old thread is buried so posting a new one.
12 1/2 weeks old. Can you tell the gender?
Most likely a pullet. I see no sickle feathers and that Easter Egger looks small.
Thanks! That is the direction I was leaning. I can't find any sickle feathers either. The bright colors were throwing me for awhile. Fingers crossed.
I thought red splotches on the wings and shoulders were telltale signs? Any posture pics?
Dark red splotches that arent usually part of the overall pattern are rooster sign.
X2 on that, and looking at it in the blowup, I think I might be seeing the beginning of a rooster's emerging sickle feathers (my old eyes aren't what they used to be however). I hope for your sake I'm wrong, but I'm thinking you likely have an Easter Egger rooster.
Ugh. Really hope not.
Here is the back if that helps at all.
Looks more like a pullet but it's hard to tell. What do he/she act like?
I didn't want to be the first one to say that I still suspect it is a cockerel. . There is still hope. A couple more weeks!
Fshinggrl, you're not the first one. Its a beautiful bird, and pullets, although pretty, are never beautiful.
