    I think that is an EE, and it looks like a pullet.

    She is a sweet chicken that just cant seem to get enough love. She went to the farm at 1 month because she whined non stop in the brooder...non...stop. But when I took our 'turned out to be a roo' Blake to the farm...this one ran up, flew up on my shoulder and started cooing and went to sleep. So I was really hoping it would be a girl so it can stay...kids named her Punkin tonight, Funny thing was the lady we got the eggs from said all her EE's died...looks like not all huh?

    Looks just like two EE pullets I have. They were born in March and started laying at 21 weeks... so maybe you'll get early eggs too!

    Are EE's sweet natured and loving, generally, as a breed? If you can call them a breed? This chicken was a shoe in to our 2 chicken family because of her easy nature. Gertrude our 1st pet chcicken is a lap chicken, but with an attitude. Gerty likes me and my daughter and thats it...but this one thinks she is a human...not kidding she has no fear of humans and cant seem to get enough love and has already become the family "baby". Just wondering if this is the case with every EE or just certain crosses?

    Quote:Not all of them, LOL! I have this beautiful blue EE with some bronze in her wing and neck feathers, and she is FLIGHTY! She's worse than those Minorcas I once had! If I'm in the run, she's in the coop, and if I go into the coop she hightails it out the chicken door! If she happens to be on the roost and can't get to the ground and out the door in time, she'll franticly fly over my head through the human door! Meanwhile, I'm almost tripping over my docile RIRs, BOs, GLWs, etc. [​IMG]

    Your's is definitely an EE or EE cross pullet! [​IMG]

    She's a definite EE pullet, but no, not all Easter Eggers are calm and docile. I have a hen, who when she was a pullet, was the freakiest, most flighty and skittish bird ever! She was nuts! I have a video, even, of feeding the girls by hand, then I try to offer her a peice. . . She stands from a distance, stares at it, then lunges forward, almost bites my finger off, then just freaks out and flies off making a ton of noise.

    Luckily she calmed down to a very brave, rather stubborn bird once she began laying eggs. [​IMG]
