    Today my babies explored their run for the first time. It is almost finished and I couldn't resist letting them out. They loved it!!

    So far looking like a girl to me, if you were closer I would offer you one of my EE cross roosters.

    EE mixes are the only ones that stump me. I swear, I had a stealth roo in the pullet pen for the longest time......till one night I had to carry some of them to the roost and BOY "she" was far too heavy for a girl!! LOL He got demoted to the bachelor pad that night [​IMG]

    That looks like a hen to me. Very much in appearance like one of my EE hens.

    *sigh* I figured with that dark beard, maybe I had a chance at a rooster. Looks like I have 13 hens. This spring I will have to find a Maran Rooster and make some olive eggers.

    Thank you all very much!!
