    My husband brought Flag home from one of his customers who raises chickens. He said it was an Araucana, but could just as easily be an EE. I'm not too sure of the differences.

    Any clue if Flag is a boy or girl? He/she is about 9 weeks old.

    I'm saying pullet. My EE by that age have a red comb and obvious red wattles. She's very pretty.

    That is an EE and my guess is Roo. Very pretty coloring!

    Flag acts like a pullet but something keeps making me think roo too. So sad b/c I just lost my EE pullet to a dog yesterday. [​IMG]

    Still touch and go at this age... I want to say pullet but would rather wait and see pictures in about 2 weeks to be sure.

    This morning I noticed that Flag has some nice soft, round feathers coming in at her (I hope) saddle. [​IMG]

    Here's to hoping.

    Looks like a girl to me too. Does she have a single comb instead of the pea comb? If so, then I'd definitely say girl.
