    These are pics of a 4 week old EE I am planning to purchase this Sunday. Do you think it is a hen or a roo? Your input is appreciated :) Thank you

    Comb looks good for a pullet.

    More importantly is the feathering in which I can't see well with it being held.

    You want to see even feathering across the wings/back with an even pattern...no patch work quilt patterns.

    This appears to be a blue variety, so you want to see even coloring.
