99% sure she is an EE hen, but her color throws me off.

    She is 5 months old, I thought only roo's were this color? But I'm pretty sure she is a hen.

    The only tail pic I have, very feminine tail, look at her hatch mates very roo-y tail you can see in the background.

    Yes that's a hen. The majority of EE roosters tend to be white but there are some hens that are white too, like your girl in this case [​IMG]

    EE pullet. A cockerel of this color will show some color in the shoulders and/or neck and saddle. Also, a cockerel at this age would have saddle feathers anyway. [​IMG]

    I have an EE roo that looks just like her except he is 4 months old. Much larger tail and hackle feathers. Larger and redder comb as well. That is a pretty pullet. Ours was banded as a pullet but turned out differently.

    I have one just like her (well very similar, mine looked like yours when a bit younger but is darkening up, so yours might as well ), she is now 6 months old.
