    Hello! We purchased 4 EE "pullets" as chicks from our local farm store in October. Sadly, one was killed by our dog, and I am now wondering if this one is a roo! I have attached many photos of the suspected chicken, but let me know if you need more photos, as there's plenty more where these came from![​IMG]

    Also, this chicken carries it's tail and head higher then the other EEs, if that helps at all. It is also slightly larger than the others as well....

    Hen. Might be your dominant hen with how she carries herself

    That's what I was thinking, but she also seems to align herself with the older girls, who are Buff Orpingtons and Brown Leghorns.... Any idea why she does this?
