    This EE will be 7 weeks old tomorrow. Is she a he? I am really hoping not, because she is my daughter's favorite... but I have prepared her for the possibility. [​IMG] We already have one roo out of 14, let's see if you all think we're onto number 2...

    7 weeks and the comb is that red? Those legs look pretty husky, too...

    Hmm... this is a tough one. Red comb at 7 weeks, I would also say that your suspisions are correct. Looks like a cockerel.

    everyone's saying cockerel but i see a pullet feather pattern...

    i'd definitely wait a couple of weeks and see if any sickle feathers come in [​IMG]

    It could be an early bloomer... My EE roos had hugley red combs at 4 weeks, and the color pattern of yours looks very "pullety" to me... I'm on the fence with this one... [​IMG] (Though I'm leaning ever so slightly toward pullet...)

    I have yet to see a cockerel with that color...I say pullet but a better pic of the comb would help.
