    Hi, someone bought some hatchery Easter Egger chicks from me. They were supposed to be all pullets, though we all know that's not always the case. The owner thinks this one is acting aggressive like a rooster. What do you think?

    That's a hen. EE roosters are usually more colorful, and will have patches of color on their shoulders. EE roosters won't be brown.

    I think she's about 3 months old - October hatch date.

    It's a hen. Just tell the owner she's a mean girl and someone's gotta be the boss!
