    I have 2 EE's from the pullet bin at the feed store. They both seem to have a lot of comb (and I know with the mutts that this varies), and I heard about the 3 rows means a boy. Is that what I have? If I have 2 roo's I need to go pick out another one before they sell out of the older chicks. If it's too early to tell, when should I be able to tell?

    The first sure looks like a girl and the second could go either way. It is too early to tell. Try another 2-3 weeks and you will have a much better idea.

    [​IMG] they sure do have a lot of comb!

    I have 4 babies that are 8 weeks, and they're all still FLAT on the comb area!

    What type of comb will they have? Is it a pea comb or a rose comb?

    It should be a little easier in about 2 weeks but I say the first a girl and the second could go either way.

    Quote:The combs could do just about anything, since they are basically a mutt. One of our EE boys has a single comb, the other a pea comb.
