    Allow me to start by thanking you for reading this thread.

    I have a couple EEs that I am not sure about the sex of.
    Both are from Signature Poultry out of Tahachepi, CA
    They were a day old when I got them about 7 weeks ago.

    Here is the first one. It has light brown/cream and black, the black has an amazing tint of blue to it when the light hits it.

    The next one is a a white and black one. I have read that most black/white EEs are male.
    However, a little expert input never hurt anyone.

    Personality wise? They both hate me haha, they will do anything in their power to run away from me.
    When I do catch them, they are very loud. I can calm them down by gently rubbing under their chin.

    I hope I included enough info to figure them out.
    I would hate to accidentally eat a hen first. haha


    Also I read on one of these threads abot, male EEs have three bumps or combs and females have one bump/comb
    If you can explain this, it would be very much appriciated.

    PS. Their legs are a green/gray color. and if I hold them with just their legs upside down, they will flap around like crazy.

    The first one looks like a cockerel to me, mainly based off of the wider, larger comb, coloring, and stance. However, the second bird is a pullet.

    I think that #1 is likely a rooster, and #2 is a pullet.

    awesome.
    I figured as much, but I started second guessing myself after reading too much.

    Thank you so much
