I know it can be difficult sometimes to figure out which EE's might be roos. I ordered 6 pullets from Ideal, and two are suspect roos. They have redder combs and are heavy bodied and thick legged. They really seemed like roosters until the rest of the chicks caught up to them in growth this week. They're about 6 weeks now, and I'm having doubts as to whether they are roos or not. What age can I begin looking for pointy neck feathers and saddle feathers? I just spent forever staring at my two roo suspects and neither of them seem to have any difference in feathers compared to the other four pullets. Do black EE's have redder combs than the lighter shades? I ask because I've seen a couple threads on here (one recent long one) with black EE's and red combs and confusion over sex. One of my EE's in question is a black one. The other is various shades of red brown...which kind of looks like rooster coloring. Any tips on telling EE sex would be appreciated! I have some older pictures of them from a week and a half ago--I posted these in another thread with other chicks, but didn't get much response. I've gotten all the other chicks figured out, just have these left to determine! They are more feathered out this week. EE on the left. (I've determined the Polish on the right is a pullet! YAY!!) This is the black-ish one. The lighting is giving it a brown tint, but IRL it's mostly black with brown feather tips. The blackish EE has a bald chest for some reason, if that matters in determining sex. Every other chick is fully feathered across their breast except this one. It has pink skin! See that bald spot? It looks like a white spot in the picture.
