    I purchased 2 EE pullets. I'm 99% sure that this is a rooster but I'm hanging on to that 1% chance it's a hen. It's super sweet. I'm so sad to think it's a roo.

    Sorry but that's no Buttercup! That's an Easter Egger through and through, same as @10lilchickens bird. Can't tell if yours is a cockerel or pullet from this photo, though.
