    Impossible to tell that young... EEs are some of the hardest to sex til they get older

    Can't tell. Still looks pulletish to me. I hope time will be your friend.

    I am thinking Pullet also. My 5 week old EE's combs all look just like that and they are sexed pullets from MPC.

    How does this one differ from the ones you think are roo's??

    100% sure it is a pullet, the plumage color if not anything else is a give-a-way.

    The roos are real mutts, we don't have a clue on the breeds involved but they are single comb and the 2 boys were obvious after 2 or 3 weeks old.
    This is the only EE I have at the moment... I really do hope it's a girl. I remember reading some where about the pea comb having 3 distinct lines if female and one distinct line if male.... I may have that backwards though.

    Quote:Just out of curiosity, what plumage colors are primarily female for EE?

    My uneducated guess would be pullet.
