    I'm guessing pullet then. [​IMG] At 13 weeks they should be showing color and comb growth if they are roos.

    11 weeks?? I'm going to guess that they are all pullets. .I don't see any bright red wide combs in there yet. I love the white one so pretty.[​IMG] Wish I had gotten so lucky. I had to rehome my 2 EE's this year because they turned out to be roos.

    Yes normal. :)
    Iridescent feathers are normal on girls as well, but if you had a for sure boy there is a big difference between the two. Boys are very shiny where girls are more bland.

    That is a girl for sure :)
    Those are all pullets 100% on that.

    Bummer on the Roos! Every time we've ever hatched eggs, they've been little cockerels, sure would be nice if they could all just get along! Thanks for your input on our EEs, new to determining b/g with those guys!
