    The pictures of their combs are a little washed out in the pictures. They are more pink/red than the pics show.

    Quote:Are you sure? All of the 24 others have tan combs. No color to them at all.

    With EEs at only 6 1/2 weeks it is really too soon to tell gender... You can have folks guess all they want but the fact is these birds can look like they are going one way for a long time then surprise you later on. My EE Liberty has had a red 3 ridge comb and red face since she was about 3 months old or sooner(thats just when I got her), looking like a male all along, then she started laying at around 7 months. Post them again at about 3 1/2 to 4 months or so. EEs are one of the hardest to tell gender on until they are older because they are a mix so with them it is usually the waiting game...
