    This is my first time owning EE's. He/she is 13 weeks old. Is it a roo?

    Pullet. No saddle feathers to indicate a roo.

    Thanks everyone!!! I got a little worried with the chest bumping, and this one has much more colorful feathers than my other one of the same age.

    She's a classic female color. A male at this age would be spalshier, with patches of red on the wings and likely some black. Sometimes two (or more) birds just take longer to figure out who is boss of who....

    I have an EE pullet (that looks almost like her) that fights with my little polish rooster. It is quite comical. I wonder if she will still do it once he laying hormones finally kick in.
