    This is the 'mystery chick' that came with my hatchery order. Hatched on June 27th, so just over 13 weeks old now. Some of the pictures are blurry, sorry, but I included them to help make sure you see the coloring and shape. He/she has some small reddish brown just starting to appear on each side that you can see in one or two of the pics. If he is a rooster I have someone who wants him and has a lovely chicken home ready to take him, but if it is a hen I would love to keep her. I am leaning towards rooster, easter egger, what do you think?

    You are correct, that's an easter egger cockerel.

    Thank you I appreciate the confirmation, at least I won't be wondering if I gave away a hen that I would have liked to keep now.

    Edited to add: He just crowed! I saw him do it so I know it was him, now why couldn't he have done that last night and saved us all the bother LOL, thanks anyway.
