    I'm going to have to ask how old, I had one with similar coloring who turned out to be a rooster. But I'm leaning towards rooster.

    I think your chicken is a hen, but how old is she/he?

    EEs are a tough breed to sex at an early age, but those beautiful glossy red feathers starting on the wings tells me you have a little boy. In partridge patterns, hens do not exhibit those colors. If you want a pullet I hope I am wrong.
