A better picture would be helpful.

Right now, with zooming in on the photo, it looks like a girl as I think I'm seeing a typical female EE pattern....but the photo is too dark to be certain.

Male EE's tend to have very patchy coloring, looking blotchy and uneven. They look like a patchwork quilt.

Girls have even patterning...the most typical is red/gold on the chest with symmetrical and even partridge patterning on the wings and back.

I agree with the others, right now the bird looks female, but with the dark lighting it's really hard to be sure since we're trying to see the colors of the feathers on the shoulders.

MUCH better pics.

Still looks female so far, but I'm not as certain about this one as I am with many. Watch for stray red feathers coming in on the shoulders, though. Should you see plain red feathers poking through, that would be a sign of a cockerel.

I'm pretty sure that "it" is a female. Thats a classic female color pattern, and the comb isn't that red.
