    I have 2 EE's, they are about 2 wks old now. I understand some colors on EE's you can tell gender early on...can anyone tell yet from this pictures? They are breeder EE's, not from a hatchery if that makes any difference.

    Also, what colors are they going to end up being? Thanks.

    I would say the lighter one is a rooster and the darker is a hen.

    I'm no professional but last I heard EEs, like Turkens, have no real color variety names. I'd ask around though.

    Could you get a shot of the darker one's face?

    I was afraid you would say the blue one was a roo...legs are thicker but it's also older so I wasn't sure. Here is the dark one's face.

    Dark one is a pullet- getting that classic pullet look. Other one is a roo, tall stance, thick legs. You got a pair!

    I think it is still too early to tell on those for sure, but yes, it does look like you might have one pullet (dark) and one roo (light). I would wait a few weeks and then ask again to be sure. =)

    They both look like girls to me, but it's early

    Mama, I sure hope you're right!! The light one is older than the other one, and is feathering out very quickly. Does that make a difference? Probably at the same pace as the dark one but since she's younger hasnt caught up yet.
