    Pretty girl. I think it's a common thing for EE pullets to look and act rooish.

    Pullet coloration and comb. The pullets can have the 3 ridges if you look close, but roos have 3 equally large ridges which protrude out of their forehead. Your pullet's comb is deep-seated and the two side ridges are barely visible.

    Have fun with her colored eggs!

    I had no idea she was an Easter Egger! The feed store sold her as an Ameracauna, I assumed she was one because of her beard and muffs. So glad it's a girl! Thanks!
