    Okay. Here goes,
    Our friends in the neighborhood got chickens five weeks ago. She doesn't know what they are so were counting YOU to figure it out.

    That is an Easter Egger. How old is it? Looks fairly little/young to me, so I would guess a roo based on the width of the comb.

    OK.....wait a minute........ that looks like a boy, but then i read its 5 month old???? Is that a pic of a 5 month old.....or is that an older pic? It looks very small for a 5 month old, is it a bantam?......so now i am confused. If that is a 5 month old, i would be stumped because the comb looks boy but the body looks girly [​IMG]

    How old is the bird in the pic? That looks young to be 5 months old.

    If it is 5 months old in the pic then I would guess pullet. It's an EE. Look at the green legs.

    Wow, I missed where it said five months. That bird looks a lot younger than five months, it looks more like 8-10 weeks. If it is honestly five months old, then it is a pullet.
