    I bought these two less than a week ago and was told they are EE mixed hens, but I'm not so sure the white one is. The strut and personality is totally different and I thought maybe someone here could tell the difference. Dumplin' & Waffle are their names and both are pretty friendly, but Dumplin (the white one) is much larger, struts when it walks, and kind of puffs up on me when it's time to go in for the night. I just thought maybe I got a rooster instead of a hen.

    I also believe the white one is a rooster.

    Ok, thank you for the input. I'm new to raising chickens, but use to buy easter eggs from an old neighbor. Loved them! nd wanted to get some of my own.
