    Looks like an EE pullet with some game blood in her. Certainly female. [​IMG]

    Humm...I have only 2 female EEs and the neck feathers on yours do NOT look pullet like.

    I hope I am wrong. [​IMG]

    My EEs have rounded neck feathers which is indicative of pullets whereas cockrels have pointed neck feathers.

    I hope it make sense? [​IMG]

    I, also, hope I am wrong...for your sake! LOL!

    Good luck! [​IMG]

    I sort of know what you are going through. Recently I had my doubts about the Blue Andalusian chick born this past Summer. I wanted it to be a roo and most said it was a pullet when I showed picture.

    Turns out..he is a ROO! [​IMG]

    PS How old is she/he?
