    These 2 are 14 weeks old. I think they are both pullets, but the slope in the tail feathers made me wonder. My 2 light brahmas boss these 2 around, so they aren't very dominant. The EE is smaller than the rest and very fast and will put up a fuss if picked up.

    Thanks for looking!

    I believe you are right! Pretty little EE - Looks just like one of my first two EEs that were attacked. And the Aussie looks just like my girl did at that age, so long ago. She should be a good layer, my girl is going on 5 years and still laying me a few eggs a week [​IMG]

    Your EE has a real pretty full beard... I LOVE beards on chickens, they're SO cute!

    2 girls, and wow, that EE is the closest I've seen to a true gold duckwing female. [​IMG]

    Ok... phew... I just had to rehome one of my "hens" because "she" started crowing, so I was hoping these two were girls.

    And thank you!
