    All of my ladies! [​IMG]

    (Left to Right)
    Red Sex-Link named "Red"
    Rumpless EE named "Goldie"
    EE named "Olive"
    EE named "Shed" (my 4yr-old said her colors make her looking like shed fur)
    White Leghorn named "Fred" (another name my daughter picked)

    Don't know for sure, but my guess is that they're about 10-12wks old. No one is laying yet...but we don't mind the wait. [​IMG]

    I've only had mine for 2.5 weeks now, and they're approx. 10-12 weeks old. For me, so far, I love their coloring and the variety of looks EEs have. All three of mine look similar, yet very different. I also look forward to the colored eggs when they start laying. [​IMG]

    Hi! We are fairly new chicken parents. We got 6 straight run EE's chicks at TSC about 2 1/2 weeks ago. We strongly suspect about 4 or 5 are cockerels.:( Our question is, can we peacefully keep all of them if they're in their own coop/run if we don't put any pullets in with them? The pullets/hens will be in their own coop/run close by. Thank you for any advice or suggestions you can give us.

    I have 4 silkie roos in my coop with hens, and they get along fine. You could have a bachelor coop, just keep them busy, and give them enough space. Boredom can be problematic.

    Out of my four chicks who around 2.5 weeks now I have to say my EE is my absolute favorite :) I will be SO mad if she turns out to be a he, so fingers crossed my little Shiera (Hawkgirl...we named all our chicks after DC heroins lol) gets to stay with me! So spunky too, she will actually fly into my hand to hang out with me ^_^ Hubs and I decided that if any of our other chicks turn into roos we are going to go with more EEs!! Im not totally proud of her :D
    here is her glamour shot ;)

    I'd guess that Hawkgirl is a female, so no need to rename to Hawkman just yet. ;)
