    Very pretty EE and I would guess pullet but I reserve the right to change to roo seeing how the comb is coming in. Hard to tell on EE's but if it is only 8 weeks old, it might be a roo.

    I'm guesstimate closer to 16 week if its a pullet, if ya think its younger then I'm guessing roo.

    That looks like a pullet to me. The comb is very small still and the wattles are not apparent. I had a 6 week old roo with a much larger comb than that.

    EE roo, and I agree with closer to 12+ weeks than 8.

    He has pointy, skinny feathers around his neck (aka hackle feathers). Plus, EE hens are rarely white, but the hackle feathers are a 100% identifier.
