Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I was sure this chicken was a pullet until about 3 weeks ago, but now I have serious doubts! Is this Easter Egger a male or a female? As a chick, it was kind of pale buff and grey colored. Its hatch date is July 19th. It came in a bantam assortment from Ideal Poultry, but as you might be able to see in one of the photos, in comparison to bantam cochin hens, it is a little larger than my other bantams. It has been mostly lavender gray with accents of yellow and a little buff around the neck and chest. Then it started getting a slate colored head around 6 weeks old. Now it has reddish patches in the shoulders and wings. Ugh Oh! I have read in one thread, EEs are males when they are light colored like this one, especially with the red on the wings. Is this always the case? The comb is still very pale and tiny, and kind of looks like a single row. I don't see any hackles or saddle feathers that scream rooster yet. It is 13 weeks old yesterday. Has anyone else had one similar colored EE that ended up being a pullet? We aren't zoned to keep "crowing fowl." We will have to find it a new home if it is a male. I usually try to rehome the roosters before they start crowing since I don't want to disturb the neighbors or my husband with 4 AM wakeup calls from the coop. Any input on gender? Thanks in advance.
