    I don't know. I have some about that age and I am still trying to decide. Whatever the sex of that little one it sure is a cutie [​IMG] My easter eggers are feathering in brown.

    I am gonna say cockeral, that comb is pretty big and looks like it is starting to turn pink?

    eta- comb size isn't always indicative of gender in EEs so I would wait a couple weeks to be sure

    I say cockerel, based on the way it is feathering out.
