This is a chick hatched from one of the last eggs my EE laid this year (she is still on moulting leave apparently) S/he is almost 8 weeks old. Mama was an EE as I stated and I'm 99% sure that the papa is my black copper roo. I am leaning toward male because of the pink/red color that developed this past week. BUT the comb isn't raised at all yet. It is very flat - so that makes me think girl. Besides the fact that s/he eats like a growing teenage boy - what do you all think? Note the bread I used to bribe him to stay. Yes he has thick legs - but so does mom.
