    OnRay (the Roo on the left) crowed at 3 weeks..sad [​IMG]

    What do you guys think about Manny (the whiter bird) Female/male pattern of black and white? Any chance? She/he has a larger wider comb than my EE pullets that are obvious girl and is quit a bit larger.. They are about 6 weeks old!

    Manny again...what do you think??

    Can you take profile pictures of the bird? I want to see the wings from the side.

    I am leaning more towards pullet at this time..

    To me, Manny looks girly right now. My EE pullet has always had a wide comb, so much so that when she was younger, I thought for sure she was a boy. They can surprise you!

    I think she looks like a pullet myself. That comb just doesn't say cockeral to me. She is very pretty!

    Roo on left Manny on the right, the bird in question...They are between 6.5 weeks and 7 weeks old.

    Manny (on the right) has a somewhat thick pea comb. Not nearly as dramatic as OnRay (the bad boy..lol)

    Top photo Manny on the right and this pic is as good of a side shot as I have on the computer right now!!

    Thanks for helping, I really hope she is a she [​IMG]

    Oh My Gosh, pullet votes...yippee. These were the last two chicks I got this season and I was getting very bummed about 2 out of 2 being roos!! Mannys comb developed quicker than my little EE pullet, but it has slowed down now (when compared to ONRay her ROOm mate) [​IMG] I already have a Speckled Sussex Roo that was supposed to be a girly. I would be so happy and hopefully only have to rehome one Roo instead of 2!!

    This is something I quote from Illa quite often:


    I'm going to say pullet after seeing the extra shots. I don't see any signs of colour coming through anywhere else on her :)

    White and black EEs are kind of hard to ID at first, but my vote would go to pullet as well here. Her patterning is very even, and no hints of red anywhere.

    Pretty girl!
