    Hi, I hatched out this easter egger chick about 4 weeks ago. Anyone have any guesses as to if it is a cockerel or a pullet? Or is it to early to tell?

    I'm not quite sure. You can tell by seeing if the neck or sadle feathers are long and pointedish (rooster) or regular short and rounded (hen). In the picture they kind of look pointed but I can't quite see.

    Thanks I'll go look to see if they are pointy. I really want this one to be hen so with that said I probably have a rooster. This one was a cracked egg that I duct taped during incubation.

    90% sure you have a pullet! That is very female coloring.

    I hope so. You made my day by thinking it's a pullet. I really want to keep this bird but can't have roosters in the city.
