    I got an Easter Egger mixed in with my chick order and am having a hard time telling if it is a roo or pullet. Maybe it is too early to tell as she/he is only 6 weeks old? I can wait it out until I see an egg or hear a crow but was curious if there were any opinions?

    Since the comb is quite prominent I'd say that it's a rooster. I do not have EEs so I could be wrong.

    Thanks! Shame because he is such a sweet bird but he'll have to find a new home eventually then. :(
