    Hi there, I just posted pics of my seven week old pullets that you could compare it too if it would help. Here they are again. Their combs are pinking up, but they are pretty small yet.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you! Here are a few pics of mine. I have 4 EE's. This is the all white EE that I was wondering about being a roo...but no thick legs. [​IMG] This is my favorite colored EE. So sophisticated :) [​IMG] This is a pic of all 12 of my 7 week old chicks. [​IMG]

    I think that may be a cockerel. Too old for the tail feather method.

    It wouldn't bother me if it were although one roo probably could not handle my flock of 17...it would be ironic though because my husband has been calling it King George since we got them...and they were all believed to be pullets LOL

    Are the legs always super thick on cockerels? Cuz this one's legs are the same as the others...

    Not always, like humans sometimes there are fairly androgynous individuals. As it is, you'll know for sure if it crows or lays an egg. ;) Also take a close look at the base if the tail, sickle shaped feathers could be coming in which indicates a roo.
