    I have several 6 week old chicks, not positive of breed but they were hatched from light blue/green eggs. I am wondering if they are pullets or roosters. Three look the same, comb and tail-wise, and the other four look different, but they all look alike. I am thinking some are roosters and some are pullets, but would like more opinions.

    EE's, First looks like a cockerel, the second may be a pullet. I'm not great at sexing, but i am pretty good with EE's and the first looks like a cockerel and based on how different the second one is i would say its a pullet.

    Thanks. I assumed they were EE's. I have 3 like the one above and 4 like the one below. They are vastly different, with the comb apparent on 3 and nonexistent on 4. They are going on 7 weeks and I have been able to see a difference since 3 weeks.

    Michael, they are very different looking, but I can understand at this age they could be very hard to determine. What are you basing that opinion on? I would love to know what to look for.

    Are the first three pictures the same chicken? If they are, that is a cockerel. The second chicken, I am not sure about.

    At what age will it be easier to determine sex in EE's?
