That explains all the boys. So sorry. I picked a boy from the pullet bin this year. I exchanged him this past week for a girl before it was too late.

What do you think about this one?
... and what about the top pic any of those irds girls? the bottom pic?.... i am trying to be optomistic!
100% a cockerel. In the 1st picture you can already see his hackle feathers coming in. His comb is to pink to be a pullet.
in the group picture, the only pullet I see is the dark headed one 3 in. Can't tell on the blurry one. The last picture is of a cockerel as well, look how large and pink the comb is. Pullets would have still dark/yellow combs that are tiny.
I took a good look at her this am and her comb isnt pink at all... and I heard the hackles can be in both male and female ee... or maybe i really want as many girls as possible.....
Hackles in EE's can be really deceiving. They can look really pointy based on the coloring, but when you look at them with a piece of paper up under a couple of feathers you can see that there is more feather that isn't readily visible because it's very light colored. So what looks like a pointy hackle feather is actually a rounded feather.
In the picture with the 4 of them in it, I'd guess the three on the right are pullets. I've got pullets exactly those colors right now, and I don't see any comb development on those three. The one on the left, by the comb, I'd guess cockerel.
Of my twelve EE's that I recently ordered from a hatchery as pullets, I got one with a crooked beak and three cockerels. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Sorry about all your boys. Are you up to butchering? Or just going to re-home?
:-/ what hatchery did your come from? Mine came from TSC but I know they got theirs from mt healthy.
