    I believe this is an EE mix, although sold to me as a blue orpington. 11-12 weeks old. I was pretty sure this was a she, but I noticed some new feathers growing and wondered if these are roo saddle feathers. New to chicks, so definitely appreciate the insight :)[​IMG]

    I am no expert but I understand that a short tail with curved pointy feathers and pointy feathers growing in the neck are signs of a rooster.
