    Hi guys I have two Easter Eggers that I got from my pet chicken and I think my Peppa might be a rooster. Can you guys tell me if she is by the pictures? Compared to my other chicken she is much bigger

    Hi! How old is Peppa? I'm thinking pullet but age matters. The comb looks semi suspicious but, again, it depends on age.

    I'm thinking you have a right to be suspicious. He could really go either way right now (EEs are hard) but that tail and comb are concerning. Keep an eye out for shiny, pointy back feathers. Saddle Feathers.jpg

    I think I'm on the fence with this one... I'll say pullet, but keep an eye on those feathers

    those saddle feathers will start growing out in another 4 weeks or so. I'm also on the fence at this point, and believe this could go either way. Check back in and give it some time.
