    i know that its hard to tell on these until they get older but wondering if ya'll can tell early.its just for fun.

    update-the reason i want to know now is i am giving my neighbor one for her 3 little girls.hopefully she will lay blueish eggs.they will spoil her rotten so i am thinking the earlier the better.if i accidently give them a roo they will have to give it back and that will break their hearts.so, the picture that gets the most girl votes is the one i will go ahead and give them.

    #1 it is the smallest

    You are right.

    Too early for me.... give them another 6 weeks.

    #2 has the color pattern that a lot of hens often have. If that's any indication.

    I'm going to take a shot at it. The first 2 look like a lot of my EE pullets and I'm betting the 3rd is a roo.

    Still a bit early but since you asked... I think that the only one possibly a roo would be your white one, but that's a stab in the dark, could still be a pullet. The others I wouldn't worry about, pullets there.

    3rd one I bet is a rooster. The comb is too pink for his age. #1 could go either way, #2 I think is a pullet.

    Last one could be boy, but I wouldn't say definitely yet. I have a white EE and though it was supposed to be a hen, it went through a stage where I wondered if it was or not, because it's comb looked pinker than the others.....but, it did turn out to be a hen.

    I agree that is is kinda early, but I'll give my opinion.
    1-pullet
    2-toss up (maybe pullet)
    3-roo
    I don't have any experience with EEs yet. I do have some that are a few days from being 7 week old. And the majority are the same colors as your 3. My guesses are based primarily on the comb and waddles, but from just about everything I have read they are suppose to mature slower. They are way different than all my other chickens but it's so fun to learn. Whatever happens Good luck.
    But Pic one has my inexperienced vote for pullet.
