    I bought 6 EE's 5 weeks ago. One was to be a roo and the rest hens. To this date all look the same as far as gender go's. The other day olds I have raised I could tell the difference by now. Not with the EE's. Is this common or did I get all the same sex?

    Pretty common, they're hard. I have a thread in the 'what breed or gender' section with a ton of pics of my 6 week old EE's who appear to all be cockerals, might help you to see some [​IMG]
