    Ok, so I'm alread doing this with my little Cochin, but thought I'd check for feedback on Adrienne the EE too!

    Only have a full grown EE: my chicks last year were my first go, and they were RIR and BO. Sure is a sweetheart though!
    And I know EEs are tricky because they're essentially luck-o-the-draw mutts. Thanks for your feedback!

    Is the comb pinkish at all, or just yellow. Pinkish, you got a roo probably.

    Nope, just little and yellow and barely there. But she's only 6 weeks so I don't know.

    6 weeks, really? I would have guessed 5. If she still has no pink in another two weeks, I'd go for pullet.

    Maybe five weeks then?...You're probably right. I'll have to count back and see when I got them. I'm so bad at keeping track, for myself let alone my animals and friends.
    I feel so sorry for my fiancee's and my future kids: I'm going to have to get their birthday's tattood somewhere on their bodies.
