    I'm asking about the white EE on the top (the one on the bottom is a cockerel). It's about 3 months old and while I don't think I see any feathering for a boy like the hatch mate in the picture sports. From what I've read it would be an unusual coloring to be a pullet....I don't want to have to add this one to my boys for sale!

    From what I can see the white one looks like a pullet to me, but its not a straight on view.

    Thanks for the replies! I looked for a shot of her face but out of about 5 picture's of her, her heads turned on all but this one! LOL The comb is very small and light orange. I'll try to get a front shot and post it.

    It may be unusual, but I have a black and white EE that is a hen and lays a pretty green egg for me 4-5 times per week. [​IMG] I have another that is 6 weeks old and looks similar. We shall see on that one.

    Do you have a picture of <his> comb? At this point, I would guess rooster. I have had 2 white/black hens but this one reminds me of a rooster.

    eta: I guess I"m the one swimming upstream with guesses. Sorry.. if the comb (as you wrote while I was posting) is pink and not red, then I may change my vote! [​IMG]

    Look at the beautiful streamers on the roosters neck feathers... very long, definite sign of being a boy along with the red comb on the bottom chicken. Now on the top one... no streamers on the neck, and if the comb hasn't darkened much, good tell tale sign your white/black is a she.

    OK....dang this one is hard to get to look at me! And with my roo looking over I didn't dare pick her up! He's a nice boy but don't fool with any of his charges!

    Lighting kind of bright (and it's raining???) but you can see the comb isn't has big or dark as her hatchmate shown in the second picture and the original, these two hang together.
