    I bought these EE's and after reading many a post, I think I know which is the rooster and which is the hen. The first picture is of the supposed roo. I wasn't able to get a good picture of his face, but can assure you that he has three distinct rows of beads above his beak. I am not a feather or wing expert, but he is the only one who doesn't have high tail feathers at this point.

    This next one is of the one I think is a hen. She just has a small barely raised bump above her beak. What do you think of her tail and feathers? A poulet?

    Thanks for your help. It's funny. The rooster is named Guinevere, and the hen is named Perry Hotter. It looks like they need to switch names. [​IMG]
