    I have six EE chicks that are 6 weeks old and I am wondering if my favorite (and friendliest) one might be a roo. She is the prettiest one of all six chicks and I was sure she was a girl, but now her feathers have started getting more colorful in the last week or so. Here are some pictures of Friendly the EE chick:

    And for comparison...her she is with 3 of the others (she's the one in the top left of the picture)

    I had some questions about another one I have with a bigger comb than the others, but when I posted pics of that one everyone said it looked like a girl. After that I was sure I was safe with all girls, but now I am starting to wonder again. I tried posting this on the EE thread, but I only got one reply so I'm posting here in a separate thread.

    All my boys grew their combs faster then the girls. Looks like you should be safe with a girl... as long as she doesn't start crowing! She's gorgeous!

    Those are all pullets! They are super pretty- we lost one to the dog that looked like your girls.... They are such beautiful girlies! My EE had an attitude and a very roo tail at that age.

    Yay! [​IMG] Thanks everyone for relieving my fears about having to give up my favorite! I think since all of the other ones look like the 3 in the last picture with Friendly I should be safe with all girls. [​IMG] Thanks so much for the help!
