    Hi everyone!

    I wasn't crazy enough when I hatched 13 roos out of 17 eggs this past March [​IMG] , needless to say I didn't get my blue egg layers I wanted so in July I ordered Cackles "city/town pullet special" I got 5 all different colored EE pullets and they are now 7 weeks old..
    I just have to say they are the healthiest sweetest babies! I am curious about one of them being a little man..Can you guys take a look and let me know what you think? (The one is question will be the last 2 pics)

    They are all beauties, but Rizzo looks like a roo to me.

    They're lovely EEs, especially Sandy! I do think Rizzo is a cockerel.

    I agree Rizzo had some manly hackles but a prissy stance. Hmmm

    darn IT Cackle!!! [​IMG]

    I have had my suspicions even tho the comb is not red or anything..The tail set is quite high and the posture has had me wondering..UGH! I only ordered from them because I was afraid to hatch again because I had to sadly re-home 9 of the roo babies I had, It broke my heart..I don't want any more boys..I have 3 now.. Thanks for the input.

    I think Rizzo is a girl... [​IMG] Just doesn't look like a boy to me.

    I think they are all girls. My EE roo even at only 8 weeks old, has a large red comb, and is bulkier than the hens. Rizzo looks the same size as the hens and has no comb.

    I think Rizzo is a pullet. I have a pullet with the same coloring.
