This is one of my 6 month old easter egger chickens. At least that is what the sales guy said I was buying. This is our first experience with chickens. Just curious if she is for sure a hen. She does not crow but looks different than the rest of my hens. Thanks for your time!!

Your pic is small but I'd say she is a hen..Easter eggers are hard to sex.
.but she seems to have a single pea comb...
my pullets had me worried cause they had big tail feathers...but they are all hens...so don't fretjust yet...post some better pics

Oh I have four of this breed...two are very different looking....one is black...and the other has a smooth head but she's huge...they are not recognized because there's no real standard

A better pic would be helpful. The comb is small and pink that paired with the fact that at 6 months and no crowing, leans toward a pullet. It does have large tail feathers but that doesn't always mean roo. This bird looks a lot like my EE hens, they are all so different looking that it is hard to tell. Don't lose hope yet!
