    Hi, I'm brand new to chickens and loving every minute of it. Can someone please tell me if "Pip Squeek" is a Pullet or Roo? I'm now thinking Roo. He/she was hatched from a blue egg on June 1st.

    Looks like a roo.
    Does he have saddle feathers coming in? Look for those pointy feathers at the base of his tail.
    EEs are so tricky!

    He's too young for saddle feathers. Those will probably come in a few more weeks. But the curve of the tail feathers gives him away, not to mention that comb is really red for a chicken that young.
