    so far when I have posted pictures, they have been girls. the BO is getting a red face and the EE... I swear I see telltale feathers one minute and not the next. Really want these to be girls... they are well bonded. Your thoughts.

    I guess I am going against the tide and I think they both look like girls at 15 weeks.

    The ee is a pullet, as you will never see a rooster that color. The buff also looks like a hen to me. Keep in mind they're getting of an age to develop red combs, they're approaching laying age. If they were roos, at fifteen weeks they'd have marked sex characteristics.

    I also have 2 chickens, a Buff Orphington and an EE/Amerucana. The BO looks just like mine and your EE looks like my EE except the colors and the comb is a little larger but mine are 13 weeks. I also vote 2 girls! [​IMG]
