    Pullet! No waddles, and pink comb. Roos have waddles by 6 weeks and their comb is definitely red. Hope this is good news.

    You should show the tail feathers, especially if you could put it next to another EE the same age. The tail feathers are a big help in deciding.

    I can put up another picture in a minute. Just have to download it. The only reason I had a question mark on this one is because the comb is redder than the other 3 that I have. No wattles though. I'll post a pic in a few.

    The funny thing is I have a 2 year old that looks like that but she is a hen. Here is a pic. Still confused on the cinnamon...
