    I have a few Wyandotte/Olive Egger babies that I am not sure of their sexes. I THINK I originally kept the Blue one because I thoguht it was a roo but it could have just been because it had a nice pea comb, lol.

    ETA: They are 4wks 3 days old.

    They don't have the biggest combs(like most cockerels may have). The first one is a little lanky like a rooster though, and the second is more fluffy like a pullet would be.

    I am used to my Wyandotte babies, the roosters practically scream boy by 2 weeks old, lol.

    I REALLY want the last one to be a girl and if the top two are both boys then I guess I will have to decide which one to keep for the OE/EE girls. They're both so sweet that I really hope at least one is a girl [​IMG]

    Well the Blue is definitely a BOY. I was holding him(ok, cuddling him! lol) tonight and saw his red shoulder feathers coming in. His grandpa was a BLR but I think his shoulders are just gonna be red like a lot of other EE roos. If it came in laced it would be pretty though!
