    Seems like there are always lots of EE boys. Maybe it's a genetic thing. Got two sexed chicks this spring and one was a roo. Guy at the feed store said the sexed "Ameraucana" (EE) chicks had more cockerels than any other sexed breed. I still like them, though.

    I have one easter egger out of my 3 Chicks. Now they are 11 weeks old and I'm questioning gender once again!!
    my next question is I've been asked what color she/he is, what would you call this coloring? and is it blue or black?
    What are your opinions

    Beautiful coloring on him. He looks like he has some saddle feathers but I can't see the comb that clearly. What a gorgeous bird!

    Definitely a pullet. Not sure the proper term for the color, though, so I'll leave that to the experts. If you're really interested you could post her pictures in the genetics section.
