    Purchased this chick from the local feed store to put under a broody. Any thoughts on breed and/or gender? 3 weeks old.

    It may be an EE, looks like it has a pea comb. It's a bit early, but I bet it's a boy - stance, thick legs and comb starting to turn pink.

    Quote:Thank you for this picture - I am not familiar with this breed, but most definitely a possibility. I will look forward to seeing what happens over the next few weeks.

    I suspect a diluted EE as the chick lacks muffs. It does have the pea comb and the green legs though, so that's a good sign.

    Hope that helps!

    Here are 6 weeks pictures. Comb is looking pretty pink, but I can't quite make out a pea comb yet - it is quite smooth. Any thoughts?
