    Hatched in the backyard a while back. Asking about the black one. Pretty sure the white/black and the multi colored are boys. They are all EEs.
    Thanks!!!![​IMG]

    I'm guessing it's a pullet, but not 100% sure.[​IMG] Mary

    I'm gonna go with hen, but I'm no expert! But from the fact that the comb and wattles aren't even developing much and her feet aren't large I'm thinking hen. It's just that tail is kind of roostery.

    What about the black and white?? Iv had her pegged for a boy since the beginning but now I'm not so sure. It's got a long neck though. And the multi colored can we all agree he's a boy? Looks exactly like dad

    The black and white I'm thinking is also a hen. As for the multi colored one, I'd really need to see the feet it does seem to be getting the hackle feathers of a rooster though.
