    I have 3 EEs I'm trying to figure out if they are pullets or cockerels. They are just over 3 weeks old. I know it still may be too early to tell, but if anything screams obvious to anyone I would love to know. If I have a bunch of boys I would like to go get more chicks before too much time elapses.

    #2: seems to maybe have thicker legs?

    I'm going to say 1 and 3 look like pullets. Cockerel for 2. I'm not sure, just my opinion.

    Still a bit young to be sure, but they don't look like cockerels, yet.

    All pullets for now. #2's wide comb is a little suspicious, but it is still to early for me to give a definite answer.
