    I ordered some female chicks and they packed them with 8 roos and I'm trying to identify them. This is one of my Easter eggers. Boy or girl?[​IMG][​IMG]

    How old is it? Comb looks a bit roo-ish but that's a female only color.

    I think it's a girl. That colouring is classic pullet. The comb is pink, but not pink enough to have me thinking roo.

    Pullet, the coloring is not found in roosters, they would have been more solid.

    Thanks for all the help everyone. I'm pretty sure this will turn out to be a pullet. We had 8 roos packed in with our all pullet order and we have 8 white chickens that I thought were rocks, but they were identified as white leghorns and they have to be the roos because their combs are so large. They are so much bigger at their age then my white leghorn hens, were at that age. We also caught two of them crowing tonight. They just turned 8 weeks. So unless the hatchery made a mistake with the gender, all my others should be pullets.
