    Here's my "rare exotic" chick. A week ago, I was told he was looking like a rooster, but to my inexperienced eye, he looks no different than the other (pullet) chicks. I'm guessing this little guy is an EE. He's got greenish legs, white ear lobes (that seems a trifle odd) and slightly puffy cheeks. I know some of you can start sexing chicks at 3 weeks, so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm just not sure what to look for. These are my first chickens.

    I am going to throw it out there and say EE and roo. Its combs seems pretty pronounced at 3 weeks. Just my guess though.

    Im gonna say EE based on the color of the legs, usually hatcheries send left over roos as exotic chicks, so im gonna say its an EE roo.
