    It pains me to ask this question as I already suspect I know the answer...
    This is cocoa... she is 41/2 weeks old in this pic. Is she a roo? Or am I wrong?

    Kind of hard to tell, Isabel. [​IMG] Is there any way you could get close ups of her comb? I know a few people with black and white EE pullets.

    Sounds good! [​IMG] Yeah, I've had quite a few pullets with reddish pea or rose combs at that age, so I wouldn't be shocked if Cocoa's is also.

    She just looks so different and it sticks out like a sore thumb to me :(

    I'll just keep on hoping she's one of those EE pullets with rare coloration until we know for sure. [​IMG]

    My guess is that Cocoa is indeed a cockerel. Although I can't see the comb well, I can definitely see the bright color. [​IMG]
