    I assume you got this from a co-op or a hatchery. It is an Easter Egger (EE) cockeral.

    actually , it was given to me, it was brought into the farm i work at, and i took it along with 3 other pullets. What would be the diffrence between this and a hen?

    Black & White EEs are typically male, but pullets do come in black/white as well (I've had two). Cockerels are splotchy and if you look at your picture, you can see another color coming in on the wings. That is typical rooster coloring. You do not have a picture of his comb on there. Typically it would be three ridges, but does not have to be. Here is a picture of one of my EE pullets.

    She's a girl, and an Easter Egger. (hatcheries and feedstores will call it an Ameraucana, but, it's not [​IMG] )

    It's an Easter Egger pullet! I have one very similar to yours. She has a bit of brown leakage on her wings too.
