    I see hens. But EE's are hard to tell.

    that one on top might be a roo... I want to see a good profile, including the head and tail.

    I have one just like it. It just started laying eggs. She is the one on the left. My roo is kinda in the middle so you can compare.

    I vote roo. sorry. that neck mullet thing usually means roo... and if they have a butt mullet too (right above the tail), it means roo too. Yours seems to have the neck mullet but not so much the rear one...

    Quote:At that age, my roo was starting to crow and looked way more "rooish". My roo had a noticable larger comb than the pullets.

    The picture in my last post shows a pullet that looks a lot like yours.

    When I move these 10 to the main chicken pen I gave my rooster away because I thought he might kill any of the new chickens if they were roosters. I have thought that the one was a rooster for a while. I got these from a feed store that bought their checks from Mt healthy hatchery. They were suppose to be pullets. I have not heard any crowing yet they were hatched March 15.

    She is a lovely pullet. The last picture is 9 beautiful EE pullets; everyone should be so lucky to have such a flock.
