    With those legs, I'd guess it is an EE (Easter Egger). Gender? Dunno, but leaning towards cockeral for no good reason.

    Pretty....Looks like an EE (Ameraucana) and it also looks like a roo...the comb is kinda big and feathers look pointy. I read a post that said black and white coloring is usually a roo on an EE. Not sure if that is true. Good luck! [​IMG]

    well i sure hope your non-reasoning is wrong because roosters are illegal where I live.

    I had two white/black EE's (including the one in my avatar) who laid blue and green eggs! Don't go by the color!

    Quote:Not just the color - the 3 rows that have popped on the pea comb and the thick legs are also indicating cockeral.

    Quote:Good to know...I've never had a black/white EE. I had a feeling that sounded a little weird because there are so many colors of EE out there. Blue eggs are awesome!

    The triple comb says roo to me also. Sorry. But, you'll know for sure in a month or so.
