    My friend is new to BYC and can't post her pics. Can y'all check these out for her... I'm still really new at the gender thing -- especially the EEs. The reds are 12 weeks and the EEs are 8. Thanks!

    All of the EEs are for sure girls (judging by color).

    Red 1 looks like a rooster and the rest look like pullets. [​IMG]
