    Looks like an easter egger, definitely a pullet. A male of the same color would have a black breast, colored like the Kellogg's rooster.

    She is an EE. Again thank ya'll so much for your insight and knowledge. I have several chicks all that are hens/pullets. I got them from a very reputable breeder here in TN. Interestingly, I have 3 hens from last year and 3 from Feb of this year and it is funny to watch them interact or I guess i should say not interact. The young ones are getting much more brave around the feeding and watering bin but still stay away when free roaming.
