    Here a a couple of new pictures of one of my EEs's. The only thing i am concerned about is her tail. She has a yellow comb, not even a hint of pink in it. I just see that her tail is a little longer than the other girls. She is nine weeks old.

    This picture makes her look a little funny, she was a little concerned about the camera flash and gave a funny pose.

    I am no expert, but I have a few and some got their tail faster then others. It looks like a hen to me, I had a roo with mine and its comb was red. They are pretty birds I think EE are my favorite, but people act like the egg is rotten and I can't even give the eggs away for free. lol

    I always start worrying when I see those pretty curvy tail feathers.

    The tail feathers do look suspicious, but the comb looks nothing like a roo comb! I say pullet too, and keep a close eye on it just in case she goes roo suddenly. [​IMG]

    I agree with everyone else, looks like a pullet. Just watch that tail. Like Andora said, it may suddenly turn roo.

    I say pullet. All of my EE roos have had a very red comb early. My pullets get curvy tails which throws you off but I go by the comb on EE's.

    I am going to say cockeral, I have had some that don't get a red comb until 5+ months.....keep checking out the saddle area, I am predicting sickle feathers coming in in the next 2-3 weeks....
