    Hello all!
    Thank you in advance for looking at what I hope are my girls. They are a bit young still, but I thought I'd see what people think so far.

    The above image is of both EE.

    The one on the box edge is a sex link, so in theory she's a female.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide this early in the game.

    That's what I was concerned about. What in particular makes you think that?

    What about the other two?

    Thanks.

    I think so because...
    He looks just like my EE male did at that age (which probably doesn't mean much) BUT he is also so much bigger then the other EE (which also looks just like one of my EE girls at that age..poofy cheeks included)

    The other one...??

    Thanks everyone. I am hoping for all girls, as I cannot have roos where I live, so I'm not sure what I'd do with her if she was a him. I'll update in a while.
