    I have an EE, who I've thought was a pullet until now. I know behavior isn't a deciding factor, but she's gotten me questioning...

    Looks like a pullet to me. How old?

    Give it a few weeks. I'm sure the EE experts will be along.

    To young to say for sure but so far not positive indications of being a cockerel

    Please wait until around 7 weeks, then post again. It's altitude young, but the comb look reddish, so time will tell.

    I'm a little concerned that the combs is a little pink for that age, and the red on the wings might point to cockerel...another couple of weeks will tell the tale I think
