    IMG_3463.JPG IMG_3460.JPG IMG_3459.JPG IMG_3455.JPG IMG_3454.JPG I got this EE from a bin of sexed pullets at my local feed store. Originally from cackle hatchery. Going by the comb alone I kept telling myself pullet bc it is very flat and light but this bird is 2x the size of its sister with much larger legs. Also I'm not experienced with this but are those pointy saddle and hackle feathers?

    Thank you. I really believe so too but she's sooo much bigger than her sister and their feathers are different so I started to second guess myself.

    I have 2 1 year old EEs that are full sisters (1/2 brown leghorn 1/2 Americauna) and there is a major size difference between the two!
