    So I believe the lady I bought her from said she was either an Easter Egger or olive egger but she wasn’t sure because she has so many. She was sold as a pullet but I have horrible luck with getting accidental roos and I’m getting serious roo vibes from her personality. I have no idea how to tell physically though. What do you guys think? Thanks

    How old (weeks is best) is the bird reported to be? The comb is a bit pink, and has clearly defined rows of peas.... age will be a big part of what that indicates.

    Beautiful bird/coloring but as Ol Grey Mare states, age helps with determination of sex and those 3 rows (not all agree) makes me lean towards cockerel. However, I personally love the coloring would hang on to it a bit longer :fl Yes, please let us know :fl

    That's okay. Did you just get the bird? If not, how long have you had it and any pics of it then?(this can help approximate the age) bird doesn't look more than 8-10 weeks from what I can see, but there is a window after about 6 weeks that aging them gets tricky until they are filled out "grown" birds

    My Easter egger is a bit younger than yours but her comb is just now coming in so I'm thinking cockerel but it could just be a pullet with a pronounced comb :confused:

    Either way, that is a GORGEOUS baby! :loveKeep us posted! :jumpy

    How’s it going on the investigation? After a few more weeks are you thinking pullet or cockerel?
