    I know the barred rock, production red, and dark ee are pullets, they are 12 weeks old today. The lighter ee is 9 weeks old and looks more 'developed' than the other one. Its comb is already red but the feathers on his/her face are extra puffy so you can't really see it. I posted a pic a few weeks ago and eveyone said pullet. But I'm still worried. Do ya'll think roo? or pullet? (please excuse the production red, she's our 'tacky' girl lol. Apparently there is something neurological going on with her. She wobbles her head when she walks, can't jump on things, and does not know how to preen herself)

    The one running behind the others in the third pic? I believe that to be a cockerel. [​IMG]

    I think that your EE's are Hens but the one running behind the others in the last pic. could be a rooster ...

    yes the one running behind the other ones is the EE in question...its the smaller one in the first pic, the one eating off the ground in the second, and the last one in the third pic...sorry, forgot to label them. [​IMG]
