    This is my 10 week old pullet/roo. I purchased this chicken at a feed store and was told it was a Easter Egger pullet but now I'm not so sure. She/he has been crowing recently around 7am and few times throughout the evening. He/she is also really fat and heavy and likes to boss the other chicks around, it runs up to them and chest bumps them. I really hope its a pullet or else we will need to re-home him/her. She/he is fairly easy to handle.

    I would say rooster, sorry, but this is backed up with the crowing, although some chickens will crow to imitate the cockerels, but this is usually in much older chickens.
