    There is an Easter Egger thread that is all about sexing. If you don't get a reply here, you may want to try that. We are new to EE this year, so unfortunately I don't have an answer for you.

    Hm.... looks pulletish but the tail seems to be curving down a bit. I agree with @abcn123s.

    It looks like a pullet- small comb, even coloring. It's not unusual for young pullets to have curled tails. She get a straight tail once her adult feathers come in. :)
