    So while I a still iffy on the sex of one of my eggers, the other has me baffled now. Cheetah is my daughters bird, and was the first chick we picked out of the 6 we have now. I thought she was a she all along, but now I'm second guessing myself. She's bigger than any of the other chicks, though all hatched within a week of each other. She has almost no comb to speak of, but the appearance of some red/rust feathers on her chest have me wondering.

    Looks like a pullet to me. Red on the chest is fine, it's red on the wings/shoulders that means male.

    Yay!:clap my daughter will be happy. She's looking forward to taking green hard boiled eggs to school to freak out her friends, lol.

    I agree. Our EE hens are my granddaughter's (pictured in my avatar) favorite hens. She loves their colored eggs. :eek:)
