I would love to know what makes these girls so noisy. Our Blue Wheaten Ameraucana is so noisy it embarrasses me when the neighbor looks over the fence to see what's up with her! If I'd known they were so loud I would've waited to get them when we move but when my husband took them to their new place, the man said they look all female but that their comb looks like a late 3 row pea developer. so who knows, maybe they really were crowing 😕
My friend' EEs are very noisy too. She gave them to her son who lives in a more rural town where the noise is more tolerated.
If the pea combs stay a pastel pink past two months old they should be female. The following video can help define cockerels from pullets and there's an EE pullet on the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ffrSCfQUus
Besides some EEs not having puffy cheeks, some don't lay the expected blue or green eggs either - one surprised customer got a white egg from her EE pullet!
