    Guessing from small comb, I would say yes to being a pullet.

    EE? Anything can be called a EE, as long as it has potential to lay blue/green eggs. So yeah I would say it is a EE. [​IMG]

    EE comb is very red for a pullet is she laying?If so they are that red..or laying soon but it is small so without seeing the hackles and saddle feathers pullet looks promising.Color is Pretty There are no standards for these and chances are you won't find too many that look alike.

    Actually pullets are so until a year old has nothing to do with laying.Many call them hens once they start laying but check out your chicken books and guides and your chicken books For instance the Storey's guide to Raising Chickens I chose this because so many are familiar with that book...
    Pullet-A female chicken under 1 year old
    Hen-A female chicken
    Many people do call a pullet a hen once they start laying doesn't make it right or wrong so next time before being so rude in your comments try knowing your facts.
