The dark one I hatched out on the 19th of March. The light one is a hatchery EE hatched on the 17th of March. It was really hard to get the pics because they don't want to stand still. I have somebody that wants both of them if they're cockerel. Anyway, the dark one first...








I see three rows here.




And here's the light one. I really hope this one is a girl. I love the coloring.







I feel like I can see three rows when I'm looking at this one, but I really can't tell.

The first one looks like a pullet, but the second one kind of worries me since the pattern looks like of splotchy. But hopefully you have two girlies there

Cute. Usually the ones I see like that are boys. But that's a nice hen

Yeah. It's very hard to tell with EEs because the hens can also have rooster coloring/patterns. I wait for saddle/hackle feathers or for their combs to start getting bigger, or reddening up before the others. I have Cochin/EEs that are about 6 weeks old and it is very apparent there are 3 out of 8 that are cockerels because their combs are big and red.
