    Any idea as to gender? It's a mixed breed chicken (EE?), almost 2 months old. It was the fastest to feather out and had very even coloring (made me think pullet). However, it also has big legs and a fairly pinkish (although not large) comb and definite wattles. He/she is now getting reddish feathers (rooster?), but they appear to be rather fairly dispersed (pullet?). What do you all think? Thank you for any help :)

    I would guess pullet but I am also not sure. The reddish feathers could be from the parents saying he/she is a mixed breed. I one of the parents reddish?

    I hope you're right!! We incubated the eggs, which we were gifted from our local feed store. They have about thirty chickens, of every imaginable breed, so I don't know anything about mom or dad. A bit of a mystery... :)

    The comb and wattles color makes me think it's a boy, since it is pretty young. Whatever they are, they sure do have some pretty feathers. :)
