    This was the slowest chick to feather out and he/she has a much redder comb than the rest of the cohort. Can anyone confirm this is a little cockerel? No crowing and doesn't seem more assertive than the others.

    With that comb at 8 weeks and the black and white color, would vote boy.

    Due to the color pattern (male Easter Eggers are often black and white) and the large, red comb for the age, I think you have a little cockerel.

    color pattern, redness and triple row on the comb all point toward male.
