    Looks like an EE to me...I would guess male, as they often have the darker colors. But I guess some females can have the dark colors too...
    Pretty bird! [​IMG]

    I have an EE pullet that looks very similar to her out of my dark grey (blue?) colored EE hen and my splash EE rooster. I think your EE looks a bit more towards the pullet side of the scale than the roo. How old?
    Very, very pretty [​IMG]

    She is very pretty! I just got a couple myself this past weekend, and they are both dark-----one blue, and one brown-red. I would think if they are going to lay soon, that they are 4 or five months old? I got some chicks in May, and they've been laying since the end of July.

    I'm going to venture a guess on your roo and say that he is older than 15 weeks but not yet mature.
    [​IMG] Her's a picture of my EE roo at 20 weeks.
    [​IMG] And now at 15 months.
    My EEs didn't start to lay until about 26 weeks. [​IMG]
