Any help telling if my EE is a Roo?

    This is Fluffy. Fluffy is an Easter Egger and is 3 weeks old. She walks like a dinosaur/ostrich. LOL- constantly has the neck elongated and while the other babies get down and settle in a spot- Fluffy walks around for a bit. Fluffy has some strange needle like feathers emerging also- none of the other EE's have that. Any thoughts on Fluffy being a Roo?

    The comb is usually the best indicator at that age, you might want to post some closeups focusing on that area. Any idea what is in the mix? With some combinations, there could be some auto-sexing traits at play. For instance, the barred ones could be roos.

    No idea what mix...I keep trying to look at the comb, but there is hardly anything there--- I will see if I can get a picture this evening. My Buff Orpington's comb has shot up and the EE's combs are all so little.
