    They were born on 10/09 so they’re about 12 weeks old. They came from blue eggs and I’m pretty sure they’re EE. Never owned chickens before so it’s been quite the learning curve.

    No doubt the one in the middle (Giraffe) is a Roo. He has a nice big ranch to go to once he is old enough. He has all the classic signs of a boy: bigger comb, color is different, pretty iridescent tail festhers, and he fans out his hackle feathers.

    I posted the pic of the 3 on Reddit and the community over there seemed to think I don’t have any hens at all! I was pretty sure I had 2 hens, Pickle (on the roof of the coop/no cheek fluff) and Frankie (on the railing and has the cheek fluff). Both of them have little to no comb with no red coloring. They don’t have near the coloration that Giraffe has either. Someone said that because they’re EE, they tend to be difficult to sex and they don’t always show obvious signs of being a rooster.

    Thought I would get some second opinions since if I end up with all roosters, I’ll need to find them all homes since I live in the city limits.

    Thank you everyone!

    PS: the Title was supposed to say “Roo” but I guess my iPhone decided I didn’t know how to spell.

    I have a pullet that has black tail feathers and other similarities to these chickens. She has that black part on her beak and a few black wing feathers like these ones. People said she looks like a production red but if these guys are Easter eggers then maybe she is too. She looks nothing like the pictures of production reds on Google images and looks exactly like these guys.

    Two pullets and one cockerel. They look to be EE crosses. Perhaps with RIRs. Notice how one hen has the muffs and beard, and the other doesn't. Also, their legs are yellow, and I haven't ever seen a EE so red as that.
