    I have 2 new EEs that were sold to me as americauna pullets. They are 6 wks. What do you think? Pullets or roos? Any help is much appreciated. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I think the brown one is a roo, not sure about the other one though.

    I'm kind of afraid they both are. Thanks for responding

    The red/brown one looks to have thickish legs and its comb is a little bigger and redder than the other one. They are both very pretty. Make sure you update us! :)

    6 weeks is too early but here's my guess.
    Black/white is difficult to tell until older. I had some like that that turned out to both be male. The brown one, if it doesn't develop red on the shoulders, looks female.
    Good luck getting the colored eggs you want.

    it's their coloring that says cockerels. with the black and white one it is rare that a pullet will have that solid white patch on the wings and as for the other one it already has that 2 toned coloring on the wings that cockerels get

    Thank you so much everyone for your comments. I'll update you if I see any cockerel behavior or in a couple weeks just to post new pics.
