    Thanks in advance!! I'm just a worry wart..I got these little gals from Cackle Hatchery as a Pullet special..Just wondering if you guys can take a look and see if any look suspect of being a boy based on their coloration and appearance..I appreciate it! I'm still trying to learn about EE's and colors male vs. females..They are lovely birds, I am so impressed with Cackle! Oh and they are 12 weeks old. I hate getting attached and having to re-home the boys..I have 3 Roos now so no room at the henhouse! [​IMG]

    is that the same as the one sideways on the roost in the first picture? unless i'm much mistaken that's a sickle feather i see there, a bit of pink on th comb, plus he seems "ganglier" than the girls, but nothings certian unless you hear a crow [​IMG]

    Tail feathers on the second from the right in the first pic concern me, the rest look like girls. The black one with the with feathering around the head, in one shot it looks like the beginnings of some hackle feathers. That one I'd be darn suspicious about.
