    So, this morning at about 6:20am one of my chickens went full on rooster. Not sure which one cuz I was in bed but I've had my doubts about one of them being a pullet. So here's a couple pics of the chick in question, Fat Amy. Maybe ya'll can help me out.

    8 wks yesterday. It's one of 8 pullets but it's always been just a bit different from the others...so I've had my concerns & then as mentioned someone went all rooster this morning but no sure who. To be fair, there are Bantams roos in the house but all the Bantams have thus far been pretty quiet.

    I'm leaning towards cockerel.

    Easter Egger males tend to have more of the black and white colors and with how pink that comb is makes me guess cockerel as well.

    That's definitely an Easter egger cockerel.

    Thanks all. I was pretty sure but just wanted to make sure. Now I need to figure out what to do since I wasn't really planning for one of them to be a rooster.
