    The comb is still small and pink. I thought I heard a bit of a crowing the other day and this is the only chicken in my flock that has the pointy saddle feathers. Does this look like a rooster EE to you?

    Here is another picture from about 3 weeks ago.

    Thanks for any help. [​IMG]

    Quote:I do not know an exact date of hatching, I was told in March when I bought them. The top picture was taken tonight, the second picture was taken about three weeks ago. So say mid march to now, that puts it at roughly five months old. I have another one that is very similar, but lighter in color. They both go in and out of the coop and right now. But they follow each other everywhere, so I am not sure if the other one is curious about they laying boxes and this one just follows.

    I'm going to guess she's a pullet. [​IMG]

    I am hoping it is a pullet. I was not planning on having a rooster, but if it is the case, I would go ahead and keep it. I love them all...
