    I have 6 EE chicks and I think one is a roo but I wanted opinions on all of them I know it's early but I can see an obvious difference in behavior and appearance. They were all "sexed pullets" but I know how that goes. They're about a month old. How do the beards work also like when do they start to change colors because I've seen pictures of chicks with blonde beards then end up black. Also if mine are bearded or not because I got all the ones with cheek fuzz. Thank you

    Wow, one of us is going to be very wrong on this... It might be me, as I don't have chickens.

    Those are from yesterday and that one feathering slower is the only I'm thinking roo for but I wasn't sure because my only other chickens are silkies which are much different.

    [​IMG]I just can't see how a hatchery could be that wrong. It looks like I was closer than I thought![​IMG]

    So does anyone also know if they're bearded or not?
