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.

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?

Let me know what you think.

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?
