    This little EE - here with his/her Orpington foster mom - is five weeks old today.

    I'd been thinking "Girl," but now that comb has me wondering . . . help!

    From the picture it looks like a hen to me! I have 1 month old EEs and only one has a comb, hoping It's a Roo.

    At only five weeks and judging only on the comb, right now I would lean towards boy. But you won't know for sure for a few weeks.

    I'm guessing male for now. But, post more photos in a few weeks to be more sure.

    I'm gonna go with girl, then again I think you should wait until he/she's a bit older. ;)

    I agree with waiting a bit but that comb is awfully red and looking boy-ish to me.
