    Cockerel. The tail feathers and comb look like that's what it would be

    Do you have a pic of him/her standing and if you part the feathers by the tail do you see pointy ones coming in?
    And do you have other roosters? I've heard of cockerels maturing slower if other dominant ones are around.

    Also, did you post is this thread, "Easter Egger Sexing "tips and tricks" *Pictures Included*" there are some very experienced
    people there that may be able to help you.

    No pointy feathers at the base of the tail. Tail carriage is low and level when walking. We do have other cockerels as well as a few roosters. We are only keeping one of the EE cockerels to go in with our laying flock. I'm seriously thinking pullet with this one, but scared to get my hopes up with that coloring.

    She's 3 weeks. I have another one her age and my bantam is 4 weeks. It's usually the bantam she steps on so maybe just because she's smaller? Just odd that the other one doesn't do it as much.

    Oh my goodness, I'm so excited to join this club! We've got an Easter Egger chick on the way (along with a Welsummer, Speckled Sussex, and Partridge Rock). Cannot wait to get to know this sweet personality, and to see what color eggs we get! (and to find out what color our hen is, of course!)

    Sitting quietly on the side lines and finally have a question. Does it appear that when hatcheries have birds that they don't know the breed of, that they label it an EE? Curious minds want to know...
