    Here are some updated photos from my EE. They are now just 10 weeks old.

    I previously posted pics and I'm wanting to see if there are any change of opinions.

    The ee are pullets, and if the red bird is the same age it should be a pullet also.

    Thanks for the help. When I posted pics 2 weeks ago everyone seemed to think the white one was a roo so that's why I was posting a followup.

    White birds can be quite tricky! I'm going off the comb, the single row is an indicator of females. And I think the pure white is more common on females, the males tend to get some leakage of color.......you know, to attract the ladies!

    This evening while sitting with the chicks I noticed some different feathers on Owlie. I don't know what they are? They are kinda hard. Any advise would be appreciated.

    I am referring to the thin ones in the middle of the back.

    I would say the white one is a roo. Looks just like my 16 week old roo. Only mine molted and has a dark feather in his tail now.
