    I bought 2 supposedly" sexed pullet" EE's and BOTH turned out to be roos which I had to rehome out of a fresh bin full of chicks (there had to be at least 50 chicks in there). I doubt I will ever try and buy EE again because of that. Instead I am going to go for the more expensive but pretty fail proof option of auto sexing cream legbars for blue eggs.

    I agree the reds comb looks like the 2 roos I had at that age. The black looks very hennish in body type at least in that pic. I'd hang onto that one for awhile longer to be sure as well.

    Easter egger boys at aprox 10 weeks for those wanting a comparison. These boys were purchased as sexed pullets on March 14 of this year the first day they arrived at the feed store this pic was taken may 30.If your 10 week old looks like this you most likely have yourself a roo. :)
