    This is my friends Chicken. I told her it is definitely a rooster. I think she is in denial hoping it would be a hen because he is so gorgeous. Can anyone confirm this to be a Rooster. When will they start to crow? He is about 18 weeks and no crowing as of yet. That is why she is holding out hope...hahahaha.

    I also wanted to make sure you all agree it is a EE.

    Thanks so much

    Looks like a male EE to me. Tell your friend I'm sorry. [​IMG] Can't keep him?

    Looks like a GORGEOUS EE roo!!! My EEs are only 2 months old though, so there is a slight chance I could be wrong.

    Sure looks like a roo to me. I'd guess it's an EE, but maybe a cross of some other breeds?

    Definitely a roo. He has the sickle feathers and the large roo stance. What a pretty boy though. I love the EEs they are always so colorful.

    100% sure EE rooster. 16 weeks, and no crowing? Mine is 18 weeks, and he's been vocal for quite some time.

    Thanks all!! We are in an urban area and I don't think her neighbors will enjoy him as much as we all do. He is just too pretty to let go of though.
