Does my TSC “Ameraucana”/Easter Egger Look Like A Roo?

Apparently this year for me is the year of me thinking I have a Roo super early, but in all fairness last time I was right and have a lovely australorp roo named Kylo Ren.

I know it’s still early and I may be getting ahead of myself, but I noticed one of my 4 week old “Ameraucanas” I got from TSC (so, Easter Egger) has yellow legs unlike her sister, and her comb is far more developed. Pictures below. As far as I know, EEs should have slate/green/dark legs not yellow - so I don’t know what the heck is going on. She is beautiful, sweet, and quiet and I’m sad to think she may be a boy.

Does anyone have any thoughts here? I’m really hoping I don’t have a second Roo…the thought of them fighting or harming my hens is too much. Luckily I have time…

Definitely a roo. That's what happened to both our batches from TSC, and they weren't even a straight run! We ended up with two this year, same early signs as yours with the pronounced comb.

Yup, definitely a bin-hopping Brown Leghorn pullet, not an Easter-egger. :)

Just as a bit of extra reassurance, here was my Brown Leghorn hen at that age:

And yes, she definitely was a hen, even with that comb coming in so early:

This is so so so reassuring!!! I didn’t realize brown leghorns had that chipmunk look a similar babies too, I will be delighted to have a random white egg layer :)
