    I ordered all hens, but this one EE bantam may be a roo. It always calls to the others when I feed them and it's comb is getting red. The other one is colored exactly like him, but she is dainty and obviously a pullet. What do y'all think?

    It looks like the first one has some pointy saddle feathers starting, meaning roo, but it's hard to tell (and depending on the pattern on the feathers, it can be very deceiving). Their combs don't really look much different in color in the pics you posted... Was I any help at all just now? [​IMG] Probably not much! Sorry.

    i would say both girls too, i think by that size my roo's comb was much larger and redder than that.... and some of my girls have almost pointy saddle feathers.. they're not pointy like my roo, but they're not round like my other girls... wierd birds those EE's.....
