    She/He is not bossy, more of a loner. Far more attentive. At least 10% - 15% larger than the others. Loves to fly to roost first, say hello to humans first, but refuses to be touched/held. Jumped on my arm today while I was feeding other chickens. She/He has had the most personality since first arriving. Queen of sorts. Not anti-social, not mean, but will take off and forage rather than eating dandelions by hand like the others.

    Week 5-6 photos:

    !#$% yes! We can't have a cockerel due to city ordinance. We are all fairly attached to this one. We each named a chicken, and my 6.5 year old named this one first... Master Yolka. (Think star wars). My wife and I have tried to re-name her Queen (or anything else), but Master Yolka is here to stay. My son will be happy. Most beautiful bird of the lot.

    Nope, she's a pullet! Thats a very common coloring for Easter Egger pullets, and the comb is small and pale. Very pretty!
