Just trying to look at my girls/boys and see what they are! Please tell me the sexes of the birds in your photos, too!
Thanks

Dawn--- that REALLY helped! Thanks so much! This is what mine looked like a few days ago at 5 weeks--- comparing them to yours at 6 weeks, makes me think they are all girls (BTW, they will be 6 weeks in 2 days and basically look just like they do in the photos below)

I am thinking Boy....Boy..... and maybe another boy
the last one is questionable. My EE's did not get red on their combs until they were close to laying age of 6 months.

I know... I am just comparing her six week olds with my six week olds...

example: (sorry to steal photos from the site you posted!)



Her 6 week old males



The first male (Geezer) shown above, here at just 3 weeks


Her 6 week old females



9 week old female



Looking at all her birds and comparing them to my pics posted above, it looks like mine much more closely match her females. The 3 week old male photo shows a much more prominent and redder comb than either of my females show at 6 weeks.

Am I understanding this incorrectly? Thanks for all the thoughts!

Well I hope i am wrong........I would LOVE to be wrong on this......I hope yours are all girls......But another thing....Her birs do not have 'typical' ee or ameraucana combs. They usually have a little pea comb. Her EE's are sporting a single comb. I am by no means an expert, but i dont think its all that common. The first picture i showed you was a bantam ee bunch i recently hatched. The others i dont know the ages on of mine, just that they would be close. My computer crashed in Dec. so i lost all my best pictures of my adult birds growing up. You should do a search on this site for EE's because there are threads on here where people posted all the pics of them. It might be more helpful to you than I am.
