    Please look at my EE chickens and reassure me what gender they are. They are all 15.5 weeks old and I would like to be sure before my next processing run. I am going to offer the roosters to some folks but if they are not taken then they need to go to freezer camp. Except for one. [​IMG]

    Please be sure to tell me if you think I am wrong with any of these.

    Rooster? popular theory seems to be that this coloration for an EE can not be a pullet, but I think she is?

    I was still editing the post, sorry, I am assuming you mean the last one now? I think she is a pullet too.

    If you could post pictures showing the combs, that would make it easy. At 15 1/2 weeks, if they have wide red pea combs, they're probably roos. Narrow and pink are pullets. Of course, some of yours are also showing curling roo tail feathers, which is also a big clue.

    That first one is screaming rooster to me!!! I agree the second one is a pullet and 3-5 are roos. Can you get a picture of the last one's face? Or some more pictures of it in general?
