So, in the picture attached I was intending to get a photo of the cockerel in the center, but check out the chicken in the corner. 9 week old Easter Egger. I wish I had a better photo, but this is all I have. Based on the comparison I was convinced I had a m/f pair. Nope! Little bugger started crowing just the other day. Beware using comb color for determination!

That being said, yours does look like a pullet so far!

The one on the left looks like a cockerel based on comb and pattern as well...comb and patterns are the best ways to tell gender at this age anyways.

They were my first non auto sexing birds, and sold as sexed females (both of those) so I was easily fooled when one developed much faster than the other!
