    Easter Egger pullet would be my guess. Or an Olive Egger. How old is it.

    I have no idea. It was found by my son's neighbor and they can't find the owner. It was offered to me, but have concerns about introducing it to my established flock. If it's a pullet, I may change my mind.

    Looks like a EE. Not sure on gender....looking like a rooster to me. Could you get a full body pic?

    I think it is a easter egger or ameraucana. I might say cockerel despite those thick legs.

    Same pic ( only one sent to me) but you can see the tail feathers better. On another post, someone mentioned that if the tail feathers are rounded rather than pointed it was a pullet. What are your thoughts?

    I will also say cockerel because of the comb. My easter egger is a full grown hen and her comb isn't even that big.

    I don't know, I'm still leaning toward pullet... Really need a side view picture.
