    I have several EE's and they are all 9 weeks old. This is the only one with a sizable comb, but he/she has no wattles. Is it a boy or a girl?

    What a pretty boy he is, definitly a rooster. Easter eggers and Ameraucana roosters don't get much(if anything) in terms of wattles.

    I agree, a cockerel. Very handsome boy. And it's correct that they really dont get noticable wattles.

    This is my Roo at 2 years old. He still doesnt have a huge comb and he does not have any waddles at all.

    Thanks! I was pretty sure he was a roo. I think he's awful handsome too.
