    Is this easter egger a hen or rooster?
    I know her(hopefully) feathers on her back are plucked from the others we are working on that we have given them more room.

    We are hoping that she isn't a rooster because we already have a American gamefowl rooster.

    She was born on June 24th
     

  2. You have a hen.

    I would say rooster based on leg thickness.

    She was younger and wasn't being picked on yet

    based on this, I would say rooster. Even though the red patches I was looking for arent there, comb, legs, and tail say rooster.

    I'm really REALLY hoping Bubbles is a pullet because we have an American gamefowl rooster and they attack other roosters.

    I think it is a pullet. The comb has only one row, the coloring isn't patchy, there is no red on the wing bow, there are no pointy saddle/hackle feathers, and the overall color pattern is pullety. In contrast, a cockerel would often (not always) have red on the wing, have a patchy appearance, have a larger, three-rowed comb, and have pointed saddle and hackle feathers.
