    Is this an EE rooster or a pullet? I'm thinking rooster. We bought it at TSC as a pullet but it's looking decidedly rooster-ish to me.

    I took the top photo yesterday, at 12 weeks old, and the rest of the photos were from about a week or so earlier. He/she has filled out more already since then.

    Thanks!

    ah, okay. darn. I don't need another rooster. shoot! [​IMG]

    we bought five EE's from TSC - all supposedly pullets - and this is the second one to mysteriously turn into a rooster! the first one is already doing his beginner crow, but now that I know this one is a rooster, he's probably putting in his share of beginner crows, too! You know the sound - it's kind of like a wailing cat noise!
