    Boo is my 4 week old EE! Boo has a larger comb than my 10 week old EE! Is Boo a BOY??? The other EE that is the same age as Boo still has a small, flat, yellow pea comb.... [​IMG]

    Looks suspiciously like a boy to me. Those EE's can be tricky, though; maybe give him/her a little more time and see what happens.

    Yep, thinking EE Roo. I've had several EEs, my female pea combs were never that size or that red at 4 weeks. My EE roos have been awesome birds. I've had several, but over time could only keep one.

    Might have to wait a bit longer.. I had a EE I was suspicious of and posted lots of pics and I got majority saying to was a girl and a few saying a boy.. Well it hit the age of about 5months and started crowing on me grew the saddle feathers and its tail arched... Twas a boy! Best behaved Boy I've ever met! But now I have some girls and comparing the two The comb on the females is minuscule compared to my Roos. So when its about two months or so if that comb gets any bigger... Probably a Boy. I also saw the behavioral Differences before visual.. Good Luck! My EE is about a year Old now and the nicest Rooster! protects my girls amazingly! [​IMG] So leaning towards a boy for now but who knows!
