    Hi there, I am new to the chicken word. I recently purchased 15 chicks of various breeds from my pet chicken. I am wondering if anyone can give me a clue on whether this 3 week old EE is a pullet or cockerel? [​IMG]

    Beautiful chick but, I'm on the fence regarding gender. If you wait till 6-8 weeks of age and post photos at "what breed or gender is this," I would expect someone to know.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join our flock. I don't see anything screaming cockerel on your EE, so I'm leaning toward pullet at this time. However, I agree with drumstick diva and Yorkshire coop about re-posting at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this at about 6 weeks of age. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your EE. I hope I'm right and it turns out to be a pullet. :eek:)

    Hello, and welcome to BYC![​IMG] I'm glad you joined our community.

    I'm not seeing any obvious cockerel signs at this age, but it is too young to be certain. He/she is very cute!
