    I bought 6 straight run EEs on 6/15. What are the chances of only one Roo? Suspect bird below;. No crowing yet.

    I see that you got them on 6/15, how old were they when you got them?

    Nothing in your pictures looks rooish to me. The coloring looks female in the pictures. They are beautiful EEs.

    That is insane luck. You probably bought them right after someone with bad luck took all the cockerels.

    My first 11 were 9 girls and 2 boys. Seems the same breeder notoriously sells me mostly pullets. :lau
