    With a comb that red at that age, I would say so. Also, that coloring is somewhat typical for EE cockerels.

    I'm thinking 100%, you? LOL

    We couldn't catch it yesterday. We had THREE people trying to get it back in the house! I've never seen a chick run so fast in my life. LOL

    The color of the feathers? I have another one and it has the same identical feather coloring. Should I be concerned that it is also a rooster?

    Considering the straight comb, pink legs, lack of beard or muffs, why are you calling this an easter egger? Just wondering.

    And yep, body shots will help.
