    I am really hoping it is not a Rooster because it is the only one I have that is tri color. It was hatched on May 31st 2011 so it is about 12 weeks old.

    Sorry, but it is an Easter Egger rooster. [​IMG]

    Easter Eggers can be sexed by color. That particular color is always male. He's also got a decent size comb for his age, with lots of red...

    Yup, pretty any much any "tri-color" is going to be a roo. They're always the prettiest!

    Thanks everyone, he is a "late bloomer" compared to his flock mate roosters. All my other EE Roos are definitely roos, one is even crowing already.

    Yep, the intense red splotches over the back and wings along with the comb are definite signs that you have a roo.

    Unfortunately I have to agree, that there is a male EE.

    The good news is that they are gorgeous when they fully come into their feathers. With a pic on Craigslist, he should be easily re-homed.
