    I'm pretty sure I know the answer, as this fella looks a bit different from the other 4 :)

    May I ask how old it is? It looks like a she, the butt appears fluffy and the combs and wattles are not super developed, and from its flattened stance, it doesn't hold itself up like a roo might! (I called it and it because the gender is I determined, no disrespect or offence intended!)

    I am actually going to go with roo, I did a quick check and found this backyard chickens link:

    The darker head feather are what really changed my mind, if you compare them they other 4 have lighter head feathering, that's what really got me, however I do not know that much about Easter eggers, you odd one out may just have different computation coming in!!! Hope I helped!!!

    I suspect roo also :) From what I've read, boring = pullet and beautiful= roo. He's too pretty lol.
    Thank you!

    The first one looks like a cockerel, but the second is a pullet.
