    I would be grateful for some confirmation on whether my 13 week old easter egger is a rooster or not before I give him away. I am sincerely hoping that it is a she, but the bird is starting to crow on a daily basis... Thank you in advance for your help!

    See those pointy feathers starting in the saddle area? Plus HE'S crowing.

    Sorry you can't keep him. He's very pretty and I love all of my roos.
