    this is a 4 week old Easter Egger Bantam that has been acting like a roo since hatch, but now we are actually thinking that it is a Pullet, as there is no sign of a comb.
    Are there any experienced EE gurus in the house who could offer some much appreciated input?
    Thank you!

    4 weeks is early to tell, but my bet is on pullet.
    At 4 weeks my bantam cockerel had a noticeable comb.

    What behavior are you seeing that you consider"rooish"?

    It has always been the bravest and friendliest. And certainly has the proudest posture. It chest bumps often, though it seems that all of our chicks do this.
    Perhaps being raised with smaller, more docile breeds have liberated her into acting fierce. And perhaps our perception has been strewed for the same reason; being that she looks so tall up against the “rounder” breeds that she was hatched with.
    Here is a classic photo of her Roo like appearance as a wee little chick.
