My EE's are a couple days shy of being 6 weeks old. Can you tell if this one particular one is a pullet or a rooster? I ask because it's comb has started to look a but "chunky". The last picture shows what I'm talking about....

It's hard to say for sure at this age, but she looks like a pullet to me because of her coloring. I have 3 EE pullets and one of them (the first and only one to lay so far) has a wide comb like yours does (it was wider and pinker than my other two EEs at 7 weeks).

Two of mine were real easy to sex, but I didn't know for sure that 3rd one was a pullet till she was about 4 months old.

Wow, at six weeks they look like a real chicken....lol.....I didn't realize how fast that happens. I'm picking up chicks Friday and they will be four weeks old by then.

After reading all the posts, I'd say it is definately a pullet or a roo!


Pretty bird!
