    Reposting this because my first post got deleted for some reason. (I had posted over on the wrong board before this one so maybe it was an overposting issue, hopefully this one gets left up because I believe it's the right place to ask such things)

    I have a 13 weeks old Easter egger. First time raising chickens, so I'm quite confused. She has a long sickle feather, but doesn't appear to have pointy hackle or saddle feathers. She has spur buds, but so do some of my other girls. She is very cocky, as in she'll charge at me when I turn my back to her. She doesn't have much of a comb yet, while some of my other girls already are getting theirs. She is the smallest of my 4. Really the big red flag that just screams rooster to me is the big long feather she has on her tail. Anyone have an opinion based on this info and these pictures? Thanks in advance!

    Id say with the lack of comb and rounded hackle feathers that is a pullet, but the aggression thing is weird. I have 2 14 week old roos and they are very timid (they'd better be until i get rid of them [​IMG]) so maybe thats just a personality trait.
