    I'm wondering if this is a rooster? Its a Easter Egger we got as a day old chick from our local feed store in December. When it walks it holds itself very straight and upright, its tail feathers stand up high. The last thing is he is getting picked on badly by our other birds (see his purple featherless back...) It's so bad we have to keep him separate in his own little coop. The good thing is he's very tame and friendly from so much time with people not birds. We had the same exact thing happen with our last Roo before he got big enough to take over and peck back.

    I vote roo due to the Elvis hairdo.

    That was the only visible difference between my Thing One and Thing Two for the longest time.

    I think you've got a pretty girl there. If it were a boy, I think it would be obvious by this age. My only EE cockerel I've ever had was most definitely a boy before 12 weeks old.
