Is my "Amy Winehouse" a rooster?

    Hey could anyone help me and take a look at "Amy" to determine if she's in fact a lady? She's an Easter Egger approx. 6 weeks old. Amy is becoming aggressive and very skittish compared to the other pullets, and her crown (?) looks more prominent than the other Egger. We are starting to have our suspicions.. Thanks!

    Easter Eggers are very hard to sex. You might try the Easter Eggers thread. There you will find several experienced eyes who could help.

    Some pictures of the saddle area would help, but I agree, "she" does look very suspicious.

    At six weeks old, with a comb that red, it's a boy. No chance it's a pullet.
