    Hi everyone, I was hoping for your expertise with sexing this chick. The tail feathers aren't standing up like the other EE so I'm a little concerned.

    How old? Saddle feathers aren't looking pointy and the comb doesn't look too masculine but it's hard to see in that pic

    About 8 weeks. The chick is full and round like its sibling but the tail is different, not very long either.

    Thank you, that is what I was thinking... but we are very new to raising chickens.

    RE: Delight30- you're lucky you can have a rooster! I wish we could've kept one of ours but the 5am wake up call didn't go over so well on our city lot ;)

    RE: chics- judging by the rounded saddle feathers and feminine colouring pattern I think you're in the clear. Maybe when she gets older and more confident she'll stick her tail up!
