Rooster or hen?? Please help??
Looks like a rooster!
I don't have experience with Easter eggers,
but I think that's a rooster! Good luck!
By the way, I see your new...

Easter Eggers tend to show a lot of variance- they are not a true breed and don't have a standard of perfection. They do usually have pea combs (yours has a straight comb) and green legs, can't see legs on your bird.
It doesn't show red in the comb but, none the less I think that is a lot of comb for only 8 weeks old. If it starts to redden and enlarge soon, I would say it's a cockerel. Otherwise I would say pullet at this point in time.
Hi and welcome to BYC. Like those above, I'd go for cockerel.
Can you get a closer pic of his/her back? Rooster have sickle, long pointy feathers on their back, but hens don't. If you get a closer picture, i can probably indentify the sickle and let you know.
