    What do you think now that they are older? Thanks for your help.

    First the suspected roo with the single comb that was red at 3 1/2 weeks from a green egg. He got no EE genes on the outside, lol. The other 3 chicks are in the background.

    Another pic of his? feathering.

    The second chick - was a chipmunk from a blue egg. I hope is a girl, but it seems less clear now.

    The second chick again. Close up of feathering - are those points around the neck?

    The yellow chick #1 with red on the wings and a pink comb. Supposed to be a girl - I hope. Green egg.

    The same chick again.

    The yellow chick #2 - no pink and no comb yet. Is this my only true girl? Sorry it's blurry - this one is the flighty one.

    The first chicken looks like a rhode island red more than an EE! But, I'm afraid will start to crow.

    I do believe you are correct... 3:1 Ratio of Cockerels to pullets.

    The white one with the specks coming out on it is definitely a cockerel. (yellow chick - #1)

    Your chickmunky chick is gorgeous, but with that comb, I would say cockerel.

    i think the first and third are cockerals and the other two are lovely pullets. the chipmunk one looks girly to me [​IMG]

    x6... usually that red coloring in the wings and body is a giveaway of a roo in EEs, not to mention those combs!
