    I can't see the tail too well. HOwever, the comb is really big and red for that age. With my girls, even when they were 12 weeks, it was not that big. I think it is a roo.

    Boy, that's a red comb for that age. My "pullet" EE's have no where near that size comb or redness, and they are the same age as yours.

    My 15 week and 7 week olds don't have a comb or wattles that big. I say roos. The legs are really thick too.

    Hey guys I want to know! wouldn't the size of the wattles and comb on an EE'r depend on the cross. I have some EE'rs that are ameraucana cross with a RIR and one has very large wattles and comb but then so does my RIR hen? Just wondering. I have also crossed my ameraucana w/ a polish hen and am struggling to sex those two.
