    How old is she/he? I'm leaning towards she, but age would help.

    If its' an EE, and no tail feathers, I vote he, based on white and lack of tail feathers. All mine with any white in them were roos.

    She (hopefully) is seven weeks old. She has tail feathers. I guess this isn't a great shot. Also, (s)he's more of a silver or gray colore with a little brown. Not really white. There is a second ee that came in this rainbow layer assortment that is buff colored and somewhat smaller. I'm hoping that you all vote "hen" with this new information. Thanks.

    It's a hen for sure then, I have noticed that in some breeds the hens grow a whole lot faster then the roosters do. [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone. I'm new to the chicken thing. I ordered 24 rainbow layer assortment from McMurrays and got 27. As far as I could tell there were 2 ee's and I was hoping they were hens. The rest are red and black sex links, brown and white leghorns, black australorps, two turkens and a RI.

    It does seem to spar with some of the other chickens in the cage. It's larger than the one other ee and australorps but smaller than the sex links.
