    I am becoming suspicious about this EE being a roo. I have 2 others, and their combs are not visible yet, but this one's is. Also, this one is a bit aggressive, but who knows since this is my first time with chicks. I know everyone says EE's are hard to sex, but here are the pics, and people can guess, and I can update you all when I know for sure! Thanks!

    This chick is red with blue feathers around the wing tips and tail.

    I am NO expert, but I do have an EE which I am 98% sure is a hen, but has a small comb like that. All my pullets have a small comb.

    I see a little pink in the comb, but the coloring of the feathers suggests a pullet. That's a common color among Easter egger hens so I'm voting girl [​IMG]

    At this point, I am guessing pullet (girl). Post pics in a couple weeks for a better answer. [​IMG]

    I have a girl that same color. If the comb turns pink, then I'd say boy. If the comb is pink you have a girl.
