I am not seeing much of a comb or wattle...the colors may say Roo...but the rest of it says pullet...how old?
Pullet, that is a typical female EE coloring [it is what is known as a Silver Duckwing pattern in pure breeds] with the silver feathering and salmon colored breast, and her comb is small and pale .
Thanks--this is a bet with an online acquaintance and they don't know exact age other than "a few months old".
I can't see the saddle well enough on my small screen to tell if they are pointy or not is my main hangup on making a call on this one...bottom of the pecking order but we all know how a roo can "hide" or "pass" when a dominant roo is the biggest cock on the block.
At a few months old I might have to change my guess to pullet as well. Not to sure
I've seen EE pullets get some pretty impressive tail feathering., all rounded ends, but still pretty curved. I don't see any pointy saddle feathers on this particular bird.
That silver duckwing pattern is all girl, though. The one shiny tail feather is suspicious but not impossible on a hen.
It's a pullet. The salmon breast and even coloring give it away.
