EE hen, I hope, updated pics

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 

She's still young, just four weeks, so I'm probably going to have to wait a little while longer, but we are very much hoping she is a she. The pictures didn't turn out that great, she didn't like having her picture taken.

The first picture of the comb is the more accurate color. Thanks for any help you can offer!

I'll go out on a limb a little bit and say hen.  Dont take that to the bank, but i'll say it's better than 50%

I have fresh, fertile Mille Fluer D'Uccle eggs for sale.  I ship USPS Priorty.  Please PM if you would like to buy some.  Prices, including shipping are $25 a doz, $35 for two dozen, or $45 for three dozen.  All orders will include extras and will be individually bubble wrapped and carefully packed so they arrive in excellent condition.

I would say hen, but if not - that would be a neat rooster. Personally I have never seen a white EE or Ameraucana rooster before.

my EE/leghorn chicks that were hatched 10/30, the boys have definite growth and even some red coming into their combs already... even if the color isn't there, the comb should be a tad bigger than that already....

i would say hen..

i had a brownish black EE boy, and he mated with a rhode island white hen and the baby was a white EE, single combed smile
too bad i had to get rid of it because it was a boy.

I'll guess girl- but it is kinda early. Don't know if it applies to EEs- but sometimes roos will have naked/fuzzy backs at that age. Love the 3rd pic- really cute!
