    This is my EE Eagle.

    I've read that sexing EEs is hard and I have three that I am very unsure about. We got them pre-sexed, but I know first hand that can be faulty.

    Out of the three he/she seems the most roo-ish. He's also the only one without a beard/tufts.

    This is Owly, the more hennish one. I don't have pictures of the third one, Ducky, but she is filling out like Owly with a beard and tufts and seems the least roo-ish of the three.

    So hopefully someone can help?

    Wouldn't mind a roo, as we live in the country with no rooster ordinances, and we have two roos already.

    Well, the first chicken has absolutely no comb that I can see. So I think girl. The second one, well, I wish I could see more of the body. I would guess female on both though.

    None of them have combs so far that I can see, they are... 4-5 months old I believe.

    I have more pictures of Owly

    Very happy that she looks like a pullet to you, really excited about colored eggs as all of ours are supposed to lay brown eggs I believe.
