    I posted a few pics of my "babies" I believe back when they were 6 weeks old. There are 2 that I absolutely know are girls. There are 6 that I'm certain are boys, but these 2...I'm still not sure. Whatcha think since they're older...now 10 weeks old.

    1. This is a BO/EE mix...got the whitish pink looking legs & feet from the BO:

    2. Again, this is another BO/EE mix....got the whitish pink legs & feet but not sure where that coloring came from (I do have a POL EE pullet that looks very similar to this, but has darker markings & has the slate legs & feet...I'll post it's pic @ the bottom).

    Here's the POL EE pullet that looks very similar to that one:

    So, are they boys or girls?

    Quote:Man, I was hoping they were just too young before to tell, was so hoping they'd be girls.


    The EE pullet IS a pullet, though, right? She is 20 weeks old. Cause the little 10 week old white one looks a lot like her to me & runs so short & squatty like the BO mom....LOL

    I want some girls!! [​IMG]

    Yes. She definitely looks like a girl. The boy has more roo rail feathers. And the comb is the same size as a ready to lay pullet. That should be a dead give away at 10 weeks old! [​IMG]

    ETA: Look at his saddle feathers as well. Those are very manly. He's going to be very pretty! Your EE hen is beautiful as well. Just one more excuse to go out and buy more hens [​IMG]

    Yeah. I would have a hard time as well. You don't want to have that many roos fighting all the time over two girls..

    Thanks! I bet the white EE pullet & the white EE roo would = some pretty little EE mutts when they get older. Whatcha think?​
