    From reading through some posts, it looks like the feathering color is a likely indicator of roo vs. pullet. I just on one that said white with black around the neck usually means roo. I have one of those! Anything else I can look for? I was looking at the comb but apparently that's not a great indicator. Thanks!

    Pictures = only way to go [​IMG] Try to get a good comb picture, along with a full body picture. The more the better! What I look for in the EEs personally is a number of things. Tail carriage, comb color, age, stance, and just looking for an overall "cocky" look. I don't think you can tell too much from coloring alone, I have seen plenty of light colored EE pullets with the markings you describe. [​IMG] Looking forward to some snapshots!
