    Hi! My EE is 13 weeks old and was one of four pullets until these tail feathers started growing straight up! Now I'm not so sure. Her saddle feathers don't look pointy, though. No comb, no crowing.[​IMG][/IMG]

    Need to see the comb, girls have 2 lines making 3 sections and roos have 1 line or no line.

    I say girl. This is what my rooster looked like at around that age.

    She is definitely a pullet. That is a typical color for female EEs. Roosters don't come in that color.

    Thank you, these comments and that photo are so helpful! Here's a pic of HER head on. Maybe it's too blurry to determine the comb lines. I'll double check.

    Pullet. You can tell by her color pattern alone.
