    I have 3 8 week olds, I know the 2 lighter ones are pullets, what about the darker one?
    I am leaning toward pullet...they were all supposed to be...what say you?

    I have two girls that are looking like the dark one. They are 7 weeks old. I also have 4 that look like the lighter ones you have. [​IMG]

    My EE roos, both have the rust coloring on the shoulders...
    Is there any other coloring I am not aware of?

    Nice chocolate colored hen!

    And you've got down the big gender color hint, noting the rust coloration. You can take that one step further with other colors as well though. Male EEs will have bleeding of color into their wing-bow that will match the dominant color on their chest. This is something to watch for in black and white birds.
