So, I know there are several threads addressing this, but I just can't make sense of how to tell if an EE is a pullet or cockerel. Maybe I am reading the info too late at night. Anyway, I would appreciate some help determining the gender of "Turtle."

This one is at about 4 weeks.

About 7 1/2 weeks when this was taken.

7 1/2 weeks and yes those are my husband's toes in the picture.

Again, 7 1/2 weeks. All the chicks were purchased at the same time, so I am assuming they are close in age. Could the size difference be a breed thing? Or just gender?

Thanks for any help you can give me!

I wouldn't go by color...I actually had a white EE. Your chick does look like a pullet. I've had several over the years for comparison :) Mine are usually larger than my other breeds (such as Comets, Barred Rocks, Wynandottes, etc) so don't let her larger size scare you.
