    Here are some pics of one of my EE's at 8 weeks old. The coloring on this one is very different. S/he has some red patches on it's body and some red streaks in the neck and tail feathers. All of my others are more solid coloring of blues, browns and whites. I really, really, really want one of them to be a roo! Also his/her crop is full cause they all just got done gorging themselves on some scratch I threw in the run.

    yep I think you have a pullet there. But getting a roo should not be too hard. [​IMG] Good Luck [​IMG]

    ETA actually on close inspection of pics I am now confused cause with its colloring it is hard to see. are the saddle feathers pointy at the end or rounded?

    Quote:I'm not exactly sure but I think they are more rounded. Would it have any pointed saddle feathers at only 8 weeks?
