I would say male, for you can see his saddle feathers coming in, How old is it?
oh and by the way a little chicken lingo for you: young rooster is a cockerel and young female is a pullet up to a year age.
Thanks. 17 weeks old now, that picture might be from a week or two ago tho.
We ordered "Choice Layers" from Murray McMurray and we just got rid of our 2nd cockerel today, and I think if you're right, we have two more?!?! We'll keep them until they get noisy though I think. I guess my kids named those two well when they called them "Burger Brothers" when they were chicks. I thought it was a silly name for pullets, but I guess they knew something I didn't. I'm so bummed though. I'm going to get a couple pictures of the others I'm still wondering about and post them. I struggle seeing the saddle feathers and hackle feathers and those certain "signs." The cock-a-doodle" gives it away though! Thanks again.
Well my silly kids named our pullets mostly boys name. Phil, Gilbert, Steve, Hawkey, Prussia then some traditional girl names of Babs, Penny, Ginger. Our Polish Roo is named Einstein for his crazy head feathers! He does crow some but not enough to annoy me or the neighbors.
Do I have a pullet???
I am going out on a large limb and say you have a pullet!
She's not laid and is the last one. Are EE known for laying late?
If you see signs of any of these type of feather in my post below, coming out on your bird then it is a rooster. Also Easter Eggers sometimes don't begin laying until seven or eight months. How old is yours?
