About 2 weeks ago I posted pics of my EE Ivy, and all who responded said pullet. Well here she is at almost 10 weeks old, wondering if people still say pullet? Her comb sometimes looks more orange than red, but I’ve never had EE chicks before, and her feathers seem rounded- but she has red patches on shoulders (among other places on her back, so maybe it’s just her coloring). Thanks!

Also if he holds his body in a more upright position it's a clear sign you have a roo. Usually, the roosters' comb grows faster than hens combs.
Not always true about posture.
These are pullets. These are older pictures.

Also the comb thing isn't always true. I had a couple single combed Easter Eggers that had tricked me due to comb growth rate, both were girls.
