    I asked about these before and my response was mostly roos. So far only one has crowed. They are 9 weeks old. The pictures were taken at seven weeks and they haven't changged much.

    [​IMG] I think the black one is a roo because his comb is raised.

    [​IMG] There are no ridges on this one's comb at all.

    I can't tell much any difference in the size of their legs.

    Thanks for your help!

    Probably because the pictures are not very clear, no one wants to take a guess.

    That last one has a pretty wide comb. I am not sure if that means a roo or not. But all of my EE pullets have just a fine thin comb and all the ones I gave away as roos had thick combs. I know for sure one of them was a roo because he was crowing at about 6 weeks.

    I took these this morning. Maybe they will be better.

    All their tails and legs look similar to me.

    The brown one looks like a roo to me only because of the pink starting in the comb. My pullet EE who was 8 weeks old did not have one twinge of pink in her comb. I had the same problem with my 8 week old Roo EE, nothing real significant, just a little pink and a slightly larger comb. Three days ago he crowed [​IMG]

    I say roo because of the pink AND how wide the comb is! If you have ones with a MUCH slimmer comb... I'd say pullet.
