    I hatched this from an egg from S&N Livestock, he hasn't been on since July - seemed like he was having some major life bumps in the road.
    YES, in advance, I see the green leggs
    Is this a proper color feathering? I am thinking it may change a bit more and I can't tell if it is a pullett or cockeral . . . anyone?It's 13 weeks old.

    That is just one of the color patterns of Easter Eggers, sort of a grab bag of patterns. No name for it. She isn't Ameraucana, but she's pretty! There's no proper anything for an Easter Egger, being a crossbreed.

    ETA: looks girly to me right now.

    Keep her confined during hunting season, she looks like a bit like a ruffed grouse!

    Hey you sure you didn't take that out of my Easter Egger pasture [​IMG] we have several all in that color range..very seldom will you get two alike-or at least I never do.
    I'm not going there on the sex just because I have 2 the same age and I'm undecided on mine..one day they look pullet one day little roo...so when it crows or lays eggs I will then decide [​IMG] Or if they grow some saddle feathers I will concede to a roo [​IMG]

    LOL I know its an EE, am disapointed because that's not what I bought but no biggie. Iam thinking its a roo one day and a pullett the next. The comb is very red but small, and I have no others from this batch to compare to. The female in his pics was red and blue and had a pretty good comb.
