    First off I'm very new to this, so I am no expert at this bu my best guess would be a roo do to the size of comb. I also have EE just a bit older and their combs are tiny in comparison

    Thats what I'm afraid of...he/she has the sweetest personality and my favorite! I've looked all over the place on the internet and every chicken is different. I was even thinking she may have some Rhode island red in her...I dunno but I'm praying for a pullet!!! Thanks for the help!!!

    Those 2 look like roos to me but to get the "experts" to weigh in, you need to post over on the "what breed/gender is this" forum:
    What Breed Or Gender is This?

    Best of luck!

    This looks like a brown leghorn more then a EE, it has no pea comb, and her legs arent blue, and leghorns are know for very big comb and wattle, so its probably a hen, and for the light brahma it looks like a roo but i've had 4 brahmas and though for sure it was a roo but turned out to be a hen, looked just like the one you have. Cou;d you take some more pics? hope this was helpful
