    Please tell us what you think on gender.

    Elvira - We think this is a girl

    _____________________________________________________________________

    Toots - The youngest of the bunch but we think he is a roo

    Unnamed BR - Shorter tail feathers then Elvira and less social leaning towards roo

    _____________________________________________________________________

    DoDo - The oddest of the bunch, feathers feel rougher then our other birds we think he/she is a EE mix

    Myrtle - Darker then Mable, feet are a bit bigger and yellow - Mable has darker feet with some black

    Your EE is a boy. 3 well defined rows on an EE's pea comb is a pretty certain sign.

    They are all cockerels except Mable and maybe DoDo.

    Elvira - Roo (too much white)
    Toots - Roo (Lookie that comb!)
    Unnamed BR - Roo (too much white)
    DoDo - EE Roo (3 rows of pea comb)
    Mable - Roo (Coloring & Downward turn of the tip of the tail feathers)
    Myrtle - Roo (Coloring & Downward turn of the tip of the tail feathers)


    My guesses -- and why.
