    I have a chicken that I think is an easter egger. I'm hoping for a boy but I don't know what to look for. I thought it was a girl but it guards the eggs of the others and has very long tale feathers. It got in a nest with a hen. It's 20 weeks old about and still hasn't laced an egg like the others but also hasn't crowed. Thank you for your help[​IMG]

    Can you have a pic closer to the chicken? I do say it looks like a hen.

    That's a pullet - at 20 weeks she is really just at the point where you should start to look for eggs from her (my EEs were among the last to start laying and were 22-23 weeks). The good news is, if you really want a roo you can usually find tons of them available this time of year as all the folks that have bought chicks in the spring are ready to be rid of the surprise males.

    I have a couple EE cockerels you can have! Yours is a pullet like the OP have stated. Her color and the pretty pattern, is a girl trait for EE!

    Agree you have a pullet.

    If you're anywhere close to me, I have plenty of gorgeous cockerels that would love new homes [​IMG]
