In the Brooder
- Jul 5, 2012
This chick is 5 weeks old. I got the egg from a friend who said "ameraucana", but I'm guessing EE, as I gather that is more likely. I know it's not a great picture - I've been trying! What do you think - rooster or pullet? Her comb is non-existant and not at all red, though I know it is early. I have read people saying things like "the colouring would suggest...." but I can't find anywhere that explains that colours are more likely to be male or female, if this is indeed true. I'm hoping she is a pullet and am hanging on to her (the rest are going to a friend) but I'd love to hear you thoughts. My gut says female as I watch "her" and see the other (more obvious!) roos, but admittedly I haven't much experience, and it could also be wishful thinking!
