    My last two pullets turned out to be roos... they have been rehomed.
    Now I only have one more that is questionable... I think it's a Barred Rock and Ameraucana mix, about 10 weeks old.
    Is it a roo or pullet?

    Looks like a hen. It's not a barred rock cross, just an easter egger. [​IMG] That's a common color pattern for them.

    I'm new to this chicken stuff...when are EE's expected to lay? and are they typically good layers?
    I do hope it's a hen! [​IMG]
