    I have 16weeks old easter egger. She is my first and only EE so I don't know about this breed.
    She seems so skinny than same age barred rocks.
    My barred rocks are getting rounder and heavier everyday but my EE is getting taller and skinnier.

    I only have pic of her back right now, sorry.
    She doesn't have any comb or redness on her face.
    But from back view, could someone tell me if she is boy or girl?
    Someone told me that pointy feather on the neck is boy but not sure it's really pointy or the marking made look like pointy...

    My EE hen had pointy neck feathers...look for saddle feathers pointy feathers near the tail from your picture I can't see any so I think it's a girl but just for a picture
