    Hi everyone I'm a new chicken owner and I need help figuring out the sex a breed of a chick I've had for about 7 weeks now. I was told it was a bantam pullet but after doing a lot of reading on here I think it might me an Easter egger roo. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    It is a cockerel, but your hands are obscuring most of the bird - hard to define breed.

    That is a creel bantam, but I wouldn't say for sure it's a cockerel not yet anyways there isn't any sign of saddle or hackel, feathers yet....jmo but definitely a creel
