    Hello,
    My Easter Egger, Dolly is three months old today. These pics were taken a couple of weeks ago. We bought her through the mail as a one day old chick. We ordered and paid for a pullet, but lately we've been worried that she may be a roo.

    She has a prominent beard and cheeks. She is a little bigger than her barred rock and buff orpington sisters. I don't know whether this has something to do with her breed or her gender. This morning, I heard her make some strange noises which heightened my fear that she may be a rooster.

    Please let me know what you think. She isn't aggressive at all. In fact, she gets picked on the most by the other chickens.

    And here is a pic of Dolly when she was a young chick, she is on the left (short, yellow chick)

    UPDATE:
    As requested, here are more pics. These were taken this evening in my basement. Dolly is just about thirteen weeks now. Your feedback is really appreciated, thanks so much!!!!!

    EE have always been hard for me to tell, but I am going to say pullet for reasons I will not go into for fear I maybe thought insane.

    I vote girl, too. My Ameraucanas make a different noise than any of the other birds, sort of a cranky squawk. Maybe that's what you heard!
