    These are pics of the same EE "anna" - boy or girl? She's bigger than our other one and pinker comb, but doesn't walk as upright or as pointy tail feathers as the other.

    This is "marie" the other EE:

    I think you might have a pair there. The second one only by the slight wing color [​IMG]

    At this point, I'm leaning towards two pullets.

    Thanks for the replies! It's still early since they are only 4 weeks old, but my daughter is trying to avoid getting too attached to a roo since we can't have them here. As they get older will post again:)!

    I agree that its a pair, and you may even have 2 cockerals. The first one is the boy and I can't see maries comb to tell.

    You can't be 100% sure at 4 weeks, but I'm pretty sure they're both girls (95% sure);

    They have typical EE female coloring and look almost like twins to 2 of my previous EE pullets:
