    I really don't think I'd be disappointed if "Carly" turns into "Carl," because I can have ONE rooster in my small flock.

    But I'd like to know.... so could y'all take a look at these shots of the mostly white EE and say whether it's a hen or a rooster?

    I agree Carl.

    I'd like to see more pictures of the other black/white bird in the second picture standing in front of Carl. If it's an easter egger too, I bet it's also a boy.

    Quote:6 wks. Growing much faster than the others a little bit older, too!

    That's Lacey, SLW (from a feed store). She's 7 wks old, older than "Carl" and she's on the run in this picture:

    And here's she's in the doorway to the under-Tractor Coop pen, looking at me. With THAT expression.

    Looks very similar to my pullet turned roo EE. The colors are different of course.

    My vote is for Carl. Sorry.
