    So I think I have an EE rooster. I'm a complete novice, so I could be wrong. I leave it to the experts.

    I also have suspicions about one of my Silver-Laced Wyandottes. This one has more white on the head than the others, and the tail feathers are more upright.

    Am I right? They are 6 weeks old today, and I know it's early. They just look and act so much different than the others!

    Thanks!!

    I don't know about the EE, but I say the SLW is a pullet.

    Really? The SLW has a lot more white on the head than the others, and its tail feathers are sticking up more. Hrm....I'm glad the general concensus is pullet! See, I knew I had no idea what I was talking about. The EE was a a sure bet, though!

    Thanks! I'm glad to know the SLW is a pullet, and that Heathcliff can remain a Heathcliff!
