My 'ladies' are EE's (I beleive). I bought 10, but 4 showed early Roo'ness, so I am down to 6. How do you actually tell a Roo from a hen? I know people have posted many pictures, but with the huge differences in EE's, what do you look for? If I can keep this 'Guy' I would, very friendly, and keeps everyone in check (ie out of the garden!) I am hoping that this lady just likes her Red. I have 2 that look like her: I have 2 Black EE's (?) One is Red in the face: And one not so much (sorry, poor pic): And this one, who had no red in her face at all: Are they EE's? Or something else? Sexes? Guesses? We are 'illegals' and going away for a week. Our neighbours will be checking in on them and I don't want any crowing while I am gone.
