    This EE is 6 weeks old. maybe 7. I have another EE the same age and they are pretty much the same size. The picture is kind of crappy because she escaped my makeshift brooder and was scared to death as I was snapping pics. I sort of think shes a girl but those tail feathers make me wonder. The second picture is kind of dark.. but makes her look like a him. I really don't know.

    If it's inconclusive I'll try to get better pictures later.

    Pullet. Comb is confirmation but the color is also the most common hen color. Congrats!

    pullet if it was a cockeral then you would see slinder pointed hackles and the makings of the slinder saddle feathers also the comb would be bigger and redder by now

    That bird looks almost exactly like our girl, Hawk. She's very pretty! Our Hawk has impressive tail feathers too, although alongside the roo, there is no comparison now, at 16 weeks. I can't see her comb, but that was our first signal that one of our "pullets" was a cockerel. If the comb is like the one in the picture JodyJo posted, you've definitely got a girl.
