    Bought this EE and was told it was a hen. Only concern I have is the tail. Her sisters tail was more developed at the same age. This EE is now approx 8.5 to 9 weeks old. Thanks

    Lol The reason I posted this thread is to find out if this little EE is a hen or a roo. Forgot to ask that question when I posted this thread. Can anyone take a guess at what gender this one is?

    Could you get better pictures of the tail? They are to blurry for me to tell.

    Looks like a Pullet. It's not uncommon for pullets to have curly tail feathers. Her tail feathers will be straight when she reaches adulthood.

    Still waiting on my sons to get home to get a close up of the tail but if you look close you can see a green tint on the top of its wing. In the right lighting it goes all the way down to the wing tip. Does this mean anything as far as sexing goes?
