    I'm thinking I see shiny tail feathers in at least half the six EE chicks we hatched. But they are EEs, so maybe that doesn't matter? I'd love to hear opinions.

    From the pics, the only one that looks like a male is #5 based on the feather pattern.

    I just realized I only have 5 birds pictured. One is a duplicate pic and I'll be darned if I can figure out which one!
    At least 3 of these are from our Goldilocks who is a very consistent producer of very large medium olive green eggs. But we can barely tell the chicks apart! I am seriously thinking wire tie leg bands.
    Our 6th bird is a very white-spreckled one that I am positive is a rooster. He looks more like a rooster than all the others.

    Quote:I agree - the others are definitely girls - #5 is probably a boy.
