    I have 3 EEs all 6 weeks old, This one's comb is a little pinker then the other two but her head is darker too.
    What do you think, pullet or cockerel?

    I believe it's a hen! But it's still hard to tell. She will be beautiful if so!

    With a comb that pink I would normally think cockerel, but the tail feathers look rounded at the ends and I don't see any red feathers in the shoulders or black in the chest, so, IDK.

    Could you get a side view picture without netting? I'm leaning towards pullet though.

    I have one almost identical to yours (from Cackle). Same deal, I have no idea what it is. I'm usually pretty good at sexing my EEs, but this one has me stumped!

    It looks all pullet to me except for the pink comb. How old old was it when you first noticed the comb getting pink?

    You guys got it RIGHT. Here she is on the day she gave me her first blue egg! Of my three EEs she's the last to lay and the only one with with blue eggs.[​IMG]

    I think she pinked up so early because she has a ?rose? comb instead of the smaller, lighter colored pea combs of her "sisters".
