    Update - Y'all guessed it. Over the weekend the chicken formerly known as Lulu sprouted a couple iridescent feathers. Not really a girly look. We will be taking him to his new home in the country this weekend where he will be tasked with overseeing a flock of hens as the lone rooster. Lucky boy. Thank you again everyone.


    I know y'all have wagered guesses before, but I was wondering if you wouldn't mind giving Lulu/Loulou one more look. The chicken in question is the black and white Easter Egger (or is it Eggette [​IMG]). I am starting to lean roo, which is upsetting because Lulu is a nice, nice bird and I am going to have a tough time taking her back to the farm if she is a he. Thank you all again.

    Six weeks, red, raised comb=cockerel, I'm afraid. Pretty bird. Are you sure you cant keep him?

    First off, thank you for taking a look. I have had a feeling that she is a he and am just sick about it. Lulu has come so far from that flighty, homely, nervous chick that I brought home. We live in the city, so I am afraid a law prevents me from keeping him. Darn, darn, darn.

    Any hope that he just won't crow and no one will know? I kid...sort of.

    Well, my own Ameraucana rooster, Scout, didnt crow till 15 weeks old, so maybe you have a little longer with him. I know it's hard. Maybe I'm wrong! Maybe someone will tell me I'm full of chicken poop and that's a girl... [​IMG] Oh, Jody! Where are you??? Tell poor figlette what this chick is. I'm happy to be wrong.

    Are you sure of the law? Did you actually see one prohibiting roosters?

    Afraid I have seen it and unless I can pass him off as a girl, I am in trouble. We have three chicken families on this block though, so who would know it was me?

    Thank you again. You broke it to me gently and I appreciate that. [​IMG]

    You may want to check your town laws first before you just get rid of him. But he does look like a HE to me. He looks great.

    He's beautiful and looks like the roos I just gave away. Sorry you can't keep him.

    Thank you everyone. [​IMG] I am pretty disappointed. The law is unfortunately clear out here. [​IMG]

    What a pretty EE. I think it's a boy. He looks like my roo, and they are about the same age. Give or take a week.
