    We are thinking that this hen is actually a roo...but we are new to chicken farming, so could you help us find out if Shirley temple is Shirley after all...She is about 9-10 weeks or so...What do you think?

    I think you are right! EE's are harder to tell but my EE pullet's never had a red comb at 9 weeks! It took them months for their comb to turn red.

    Looks like a roo to me. I have an EE pullet that is 4 months old that looks just like yours...without the comb that is!

    I think he is a HE... my 11 weeks old EE do not have a comb that red!!!
    But if he is nice you should keep him, I just introduce a Youg rooster to my flock and the girls are so happy. He takes care of them and sound the alarm for predator.

    I love him, even if he wakes up very VERY early in the morning:lol:
