    Does this look like a hen or roo ? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm new to chickens and inherited these. I think it's an EE ?[​IMG]

    Definitely a roo! He's got pointy hackle (neck) and saddle (the feathers just before the tail) feathers and also has the tail feathers and large comb roosters get.

    Not an Easter egger. Closest thing he looks like is a gold laced wyandotte, but wrong comb and leg color.
