    I was told she was a she. Olive is 12 weeks old, but i posted in another thread about her jumping at me and the other chickens and someone suggested she might actually be a he. Just wanted to get more people's opinions on it. Thanks in advance!![​IMG]

    A lovely Easter Egger pullet. Hopefully she will lay you a beautiful blue or green egg :)

    Pullet. With the behavior you're describing, it never hurts to double check gender, but you're safe in this case. Even though she's female, though, is no reason for her to show bad manners to you. Nip that jumping at you now and you'll have nicer experience with your flock.

    Olive can keep her name. She is definitely a pullet. :eek:)
