    Hi everyone, this is Harriet. She's 4 weeks old and the only one of my EEs to have this type of comb. I'm starting to think she is a rooster and that we need to change her name to Harry, but I hope I'm wrong. We can't keep roos :(. Can anyone help? My husband and I are new to this!

    I can't see the comb. Could you get a better picture?

    Looks like three rows on that comb to me, which would indicate cockeral.

    That comb is too well developed for a pullet of that age, and it's starting to pink up. I'm betting the 'rooster' red will start to show up on the shoulders/wings in just a few more weeks.
