    I have raised a few chicks that are now 3 months old, RIR - Cinnamon Queen - White Rock and 1 EE. My GF and I originally thought it was a pullet , then a roo, now just are not sure. It seems a little smallish for a roo compared to my other breeds, this is my first EE and am not familiar with the characteristics. Any info from you knowledgeable BYC'rs would be appreciated.

    Definitely looks roo to me, look at those tail feathers!

    I have 5 EE hens, none of them have tail feathers like that and their combs are also loads smaller [​IMG]

    Thanks for your replies. I was somewhat sure it was a roo untill I saw a post on here about an EE with tail fethers that looked way out there to me and many were saying was a pullet. I was not sure about the comb. That one post that I saw and the smallish size of my EE just kind of got us confused. Thanks all for your input.

    I have EEs too that are 12 to 13 weeks old and I would definitely say roo.
