    This one is suppose to be an Easter Egger, but doesn't have the dark legs. Everytime I get a group of chicks, I always end up with one that's a rooster, and this time I'm kind of hopeful since we have no rooster right now, but not really sure. They are 8/ 8.5 weeks old. Thanks for thoughts on this one.

    Looks like a pullet.

    If you could get a body shot, we could help better with breed. Looks pretty, though.

    I'll try, has been running away from the camera! I think they are scared of it!

    Quote:It could be a poor quality EE pullet (not that ee's really have a standard...). The coloration is very typical of an EE, but there's no muff/beard and the bird has a straight comb, not a pea comb. If it does have EE in it, it probably won't lay a blue/green egg. Def. a pullet though.

    ETA - not a black sex link though either. Where did you get her from?

    I'd say she has EE in her, she has the slate colored legs and the right color feathers. I have an EE with no muffs or beards and she lays green eggs, the single comb is iffy though...
