    Hello again everyone!
    I got this chick from a lady, who she said it was a female Araucana but I believe it is probably an EE. Just wanted to check to here and get ya'lls input.

    Age: 4 weeks (Best guess)

    Does it have a straight comb? It's hard to tell in the picture. It doesn't look like an EE at all to me, and with reddish colour already showing in the comb and wattles at 4 weeks I would be sceptical that it is a pullet also.

    It could be closer to 6 weeks. The comb is straight like my little production red Pullet. The comb is very light pink in the day light.

    Need a photo with natural lighting. Camera flashes can wash out the actual color of the comb.

    That's a cockerel, I need a full body picture to accurately tell the breed, but it looks like a White Plymouth Rock

    An EE has a beard, muffs, and a pea comb. That chick doesn't have any of those qualities. [​IMG]

    It's not an Aracauna, and I don't see any EE traits there either.

    Not seeing any signs of a cockerel, but it's pretty early yet.

    A pic of the bird standing naturally in good light will help. With that background, it may be a barnyard mix, who knows?

    Definitely not an Easter Egger. Could be a White Rock or a Cornish X. Definitely male.
