    Easter Egger – 6 weeks old – Pullet?
    This lovely chick is 6 weeks old today and was sexed, so we are pretty sure she is a girl but it never helps to get a visual confirmation now that she’s older since we cannot keep roosters. So what do you think? Thanks!

    Comb is awfully small and light in color. Nice full feathers for 6 weeks too. I'm thinking pullet. I'm also hoping pullet for you! I love my EEs, those puffy cheeks always make me smile.

    You can breathe now! Pullet! One I had who looked that that laid a pretty olive colored egg. The other one laid a brown egg... good luck!

    Thanks everyone!! She is my husband's favorite chick. She is very fast and darts everywhere...super funny to watch. Olive eggs would be pretty cool. We also have a Wheaten Ameraucana...so we'll get blue there! So excited!!

    Looks pullet to me because the roos would have a redder comb at that age.
