    These are pictures of our EE when it was 7-8 weeks old. Don't have any recent pictures but it is now 12-13 weeks old and displaying some rooster-ish behavior and the skin around the comb and wattles is getting redder by the day. Hen or roo?

    The light colored bird is the one in question

    It looks like a pullet to me. The EEs we've had tended to be on the feistier side.
