    Little young to be definite, but to me it currently looks like a pullet.

    Ok so the verdict is still out on ole Petunia/ Petey! Thank y'all for replying. I honestly thought I'd posted incorrectly as I'm new to forum chat so now I know! Looking forward to more responses.

    Also just throwing this out there but I have 2 other EE the same age and this one is more dominant and pushy, larger and has a larger redder comb than both of them. However they are from different hatcheries so that may make a difference. Do they mature differently from different hatcheries?
