    I just picked up my EE chicks. Can you help tell from these pics if they are all pullets? Thanks in advance![​IMG]

    I don't see anyone screaming rooster but I would keep on eye on them and post again in a week or two.

    If any are cockerels, my money would be on these two. It's early days yet, so maybe post again in a few weeks.

    Thanks for your replies! I am suspicious that one of the brown one might be a cockrel. Out of 10 chicks, these all had the smallest, palest combs. And they were the least patchy. Guess time will tell.

    I don't see any obvious cockerels yet, though the reddish brown one in donrae's quote is a little suspicious.
