    Bought this arucauna 2 weeks ago. Seller wasn't 100% certain if it was a hen, told I could return if it turned out to be a roo. Has not crowed is being bullied by our 18 month old rsl's, not aggressive and approx 22 weeks old. Thoughts?[​IMG]

    Pretty Easter egger pullet. Looks like she should be laying any time now, and a good chance for blue or green eggs.

    It's possible, but green or blue is more likely. In Easter eggers, the pea comb is closely tied to the blue egg gene on the DNA strand, something like a pea comb gives a 97% chance of colored eggs.
