    This Lavender Wheaton is a little over 5 weeks and this comb is looking Roosterish to me. What do you think? I'm still learning, [​IMG]

    I would agree- given the color and seeming multiple rows of comb already showing

    Is it an Easter egger? cause I've had some Pullets redening at that age. It is to early to tell for shore though.

    Except it isn't just the color that is being considered, but also the very structure of the comb

    I'm going to guess pullet. Nothing really seems to be screaming roo. The comb is getting large but I'm not convinced
