    Hello,

    Hope you can help me - I need to figure out which chicks to hold on to, and which to send out to the farm, hopefully before any start crowing since I live in the city! Please take a look below, and thanks for your help!

    Great! That is what I was thinking as well. I just wish my 5 week old Wyandottes were as easy to identify!

    Thanks for the confirmation everyone.

    EE #2 does have a bigger comb than the other 2, but is feathered/patterned more like a girl EE. I wouldn't give up on her yet. EE combs do vary - some are single row pea combs, some double row, and I some even have straight combs -- I have all 3 types of combs with my easter eggers.

    Definitely not an Araucana or Ameraucana in the bunch.

    #2 looks like a roo.
