    supposed to be female, but "her" developing comb is pinker and a little larger than her sisters, which has me somewhat worried. In the past I have not had good luck getting pullet EE's, and if its a roo I will need to get rid of her.

    I am VERY much leaning toward roo on this one. That is awfully pink for only 6 weeks, but also I think I am seeing pointy hackle feathers, and that tail is pretty long...sorry! [​IMG]

    I'm going with roo as well. His comb, his stance, his tail... everything just screams "roo".

    I say rooster too. On the bright side he'll look very handsome when he's grown up [​IMG]
