    I'm trying to determine if these EEs are bantams, as they are tiny compared to some pullets similar in age. They are 7 1/2 weeks old, stand 12" high, 9" long from head to tail, and are 4-5" across. These are the best pics I can get - they just won't stand still! Also, I'm wondering if Peanut is in fact a pullet. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    It's hard to tell size from the pictures, but not the sex. Peanut looks like a roo.

    If they are a foot tall they are most likely standards. My EE is the same age and size and I know she is a standard...so I vote standard

    If they're 7 weeks and a foot tall, then most likely standards.

    Standard. They are already at least as big as my bantams. Peanut looks like a girl to me.
