    This 2 month old chick was mixed with an EE and I'm assuming one of my california grey girls egg. Can anybody identify her gender?

    This is my cockerel when he was 2 months old. See his wattles are much larger and his comb is much more red.
    I think you have a pullet :)

    Thank you! That's what I wanted to hear! I had 7 chicks hatched under 2 hens (2 and 5) and I would like a few hens

    Which parent was the California Grey, and which was the Easter Egger?

    California Grey would have been the mother and the EE is my rooster

    A barred hen can only pass her barring gene to her male offspring. It's a boy.

    Yep, can't argue with genetics. Fact is fact. And the fact is, that chick can not be female.

    Must be a male then. You're right, can't argue with genetics. Looked like a pullet, though haha.
