    This is my 14 week old EE from a Privett Hatchery. I am a bit confused as to what "she" is. I was thinking she was a she but are these saddle feathers I see? Can anyone help me? She doesn't have much of a comb yet or wattles.
    Please help

    That's a pullet through and through. A roo would have deeper color over the shoulders and the pattern wouldn't be as even and clean.

    Very true. A roo would not have these patterns.

    Definitely a girl. She looks a lot like my Brunhilda. =)

    Good to know. Guess they aren't saddle feathers after all. Phew!

    Let me just address this part, girls get hackles and saddle feathers as well, they are just rounded and not pointy like boys :) [​IMG] Here are what the boy feathers look like on my Easter Egger Rooster - Stanley
