    We are new to having chickens. We ordered 5 sexed chickens (3EEers and 2 buff Orpingtons) they are now 12 weeks old. I'm kinda in denial...I think our little puffy cheek EEer is a roo :( what do you think? I would like to find a home soon if it is, please help! Thank you. And he/she hasn't crowed yet. [​IMG]

    You have a good eye unfortunately. It looks like you have a rooster.

    Hello again. I met you on the New Member Introductions. :eek:) As I stated there in the NMI section, those three rows in that pea comb point to a cockerel (pullets typically have a single row). Sorry. :eek:(
