    I adopted 4 EE's a few days ago. I was told they were all female, but not knowing much about EE's or pea combs (my other chickens are all heavy breeds), I didn't second guess the gender if them until I got home with them. I do not know how old they are... They appear young though and I'm uncertain if I see just a chunky rose comb or 3 rows indicating a roo? Help! [​IMG]

    That one in the photo looks like an EE hen, and she looks ready to lay an egg any minute! She also has classic female feather coloring. Sounds like all their combs are large, red, and 3-rowed because they are approaching lay, rather than that they are roosters. More photos of the others would be helpful.

    You have a female for sure. She's a pretty bird! She should lay you lots of nice colored eggs.
