    Okay, so I know the breed (EE), and I know it is too young to guess on gender....but I am thinking that my 2 EEs are older than I think....they just seem so big!
    Here is yogurt (she/he is a tad bit slower feathering than her/his freakish sister--freaky in the sense that she loves to be held and cuddles up and hides in your hair...but runs from hands).

    I am thinking he/she will be 3 weeks old today or tomorrow. Do you agree?

    Very pretty EE! One of my Fav. birds so far. Looks like he will be 3 weeks soon. My girls are about that age, well maybe a week older and they are Full of feathers, so I think your may be a roo. But if you want I pullet I will be crossing my fingers for ya! [​IMG] I love the way your EE has so many striped around the eyes! very pretty! [​IMG]

    Thanks.
    I am hoping pullet, but this is the only one of the three in the brooder I think might be a roo. If yogurt does turn out to be a he I will just try to keep him from crowing.
    The two EEs were left from a previous hatch, and the BR I got was hatched on the 27th...so I am really unsure of the age of the EEs
