    Newbe here! [​IMG] I have 3 ees that I picked at the local feed store....one has a shorter tail and shoulder feathers when the other do not have any shoulder feathers. Can you tell who is the boy by the way they feather in?

    They are all 3(ish) week old

    Here are those soulder feathers

    I think it is a bit too early to tell, give them some time- EE's can be tricky sometimes!

    Pullet, Roo, Pullet.
    Now this is coming from some one who ALWAYS seems to pick out roosters. I have 10 at the moment. Thank goodness I live in the country, and they all don't crow.

    EEs can be tricky. I am pretty sure #1 is a pullet though.

    It is too early to tell for sure, but by coloring #1 looks to be a pullet, #2 looks to be a cockerel, the white ones are really hard, but I'll go with pullet for now.
