    This was our "exotic" chick from our McMurray order. Looks like an Easter Egger to me! Now the question is hen or roo? I am really hoping it is a hen because "Henna" is one of my daughter's favorites and we really don't want any roosters. I think my daughter would have definite problems with eating her. :/ They are about 11 weeks now.

    Black and white EE's are usually roos, that and the thick legs, plus I see some red comb in the pic, as well as some gold/red hackle and saddles starting to come in pointy.
