    I have a 5 week ee chick. If you have experience with these can you please tell me if I have pullet or cockerel.
    The comb itself is very little but there is obvious pink.
    Happy to provide additional pic inclusive of mum and dad if needed.

    I'm thinking pullet, also it doesn't looks like an EE maybe a mix.

    Mum is a b/yard mix and dad is an Australian araucana. I thought that made this an ee. Sorry if that's not right, still learning all about these complicated creatures lol

    I'm thinking pullet, but that touch of color to the comb makes me less than 100% positive.....

    My roo-dar is usually pretty accurate. Can you post pics again in a few weeks? color and everything else is saying pullet, and a cutie at that.

    Well, that is a sigh of relief. I was sure with the pink coming thru we had a roo. Lou was a lone survivor and is living in our lounge room but I cannot have another roo and we are getting very fond of Lou.
