    So I went to a very nice lady told her I was looking for an Easter Egger pullet and mentioned that I cannot have roosters. The more I look at this chicken, the more confused I get. Right now all of the feathers are rounded but there are still feathers coming in around the next that appear to be black and orange. The earlobes are more yellowish with a pink tinge. What in the world did I get???

    That is an EE=Easter Egger. Should lay a blue-green egg. I have a bunch that look just like her. They are reliable layers and quite hardy too. Congrats!

    I think I was starting to have reservations that it's actually a cockeral.

    Looks like a hen to me....I think the feather coloring is proubly throwing you off,making the feathers seam pointy when they are not.

    I am voting hen...their lines are mixed with so many different things that a lot of the rules don't apply I have found...
