    @KikisGirls you ARE fast girl! Editing and you already liked it. Wow.

    These are the ones with the most red. I'm curious.

    @junebuggena is very good with EE sexing.
    I'm afraid poor yellow might just lay eggs. :(

    We never heard back from @Ursuline Chick about eating chick feed AND she's homing cockerels. I'm guessing she doesn't want to discuss it.

    The first one is definitely a pullet. On the second one, I am a little concerned by the patchiness of the color pattern. Otherwise it, too, looks like a pullet. Keep your eye on it, though.
