    Yep, it's a girl - pretty common EE pullet coloring - she looks just like our Cleopatra did (pics on my BYC page).

    I think it's a roo. The comb is pretty red for 6 weeks. The wings look like they are crossing over the back. Does it make any odd sounds yet? Or act dominant over the others? The coloring looks pullet-like, but the really red comb makes me think roo.

    Pullet. The wings look like her back is showing, to me. Between that and the coloring, I'd say girl.

    I have two like that one. One being 4 plus weeks younger than the other. Both are girls. However neither one has a comb that red.
    We posted a pic awhile back of our older one, and ArizonaDesertChicks was right about her. She is a She [​IMG] She is also the head hen, what she says goes...

    Thanks. I agree with the majority the color is like egg layen EE's I've had. But I don't remember what the any EE Roo's coloring was at that age. The coloring is pretty rich.
    Sequin asked about weird sounds. Just today it kind of made an Ack Ack

    again, there is no *gender* coloring in EE's. That comb is waaay too red and big for a 6 week old pullet. I am saying cockeral. The saddle feathers may not be noticable for another 10 weeks or so....
