    Not everything photographed is an Ee. I'm just looking for any guesses on if we have any roos I'm thinking all pullets. They were sexed. We also ended up with a severe scissor beak. Any suggestions for that are also welcome ;-)

    All look to be pullets. I don’t personally have any experience with scissor beak, but I know there are quite a few people whom do!

    Nothing screams cockerel yet, but it’s a little early.

    Also, I’d open a thread about the one with scissor beak(if you haven’t already), to see if she can be helped or if it’s too late. That one looks pretty bad.

    I don’t know, I’ve never dealt with it myself. I have seen where people have, but the started when the chick was a day or so from hatch. Put it on the emergency thread and see. I’m sure somebody can give you advice.

    Do a search in the forums for scissor beaks, and post in Illness, Disease, Injuries, Cures. I've read/seen where it's manageable. Oh, they're all looking like pullets ... :welcome

    The only one that looks like he could be a roo is the 3rd pic down with the tall standing chick in the back. The rest look to be pullets, but EES take time to know for sure!

    I feel awful about your poor bird with scissors beak. It looks bad. The only thing I briefly read about it was thar most birds can adjust to it and learn to eat and drink with it. Other then that I have no experience with it. I hope it goes ok.

    That is really an extreme scissor beak, I don't think there is anything that can be done for it. Otherwise piling up the feed, makes it easier to get something in their mouths, when they try to peck something.
