    These are my 9 week old EE's. I keep going back and forth on whether they are boys or girls. Any help would be wonderful!

    Thanks, I sure hope so! Everyone keeps talking about pointed feathers and the brown one has lots of pointed feathers on her neck and a lot of different feathers in front of her tail ( I am not sure of the technical terms these are my first chickens:D )

    They are female. I don't think pointed feathers plays a good role when discussing EE's. All my EE hens have had pointed feathers.
