    Just for fun! Anyone want to take a guess? I will update the photos to show their progression weekly. I am a new chicken mama and am already obsessed with fluffy butts! Unfortunately, if any of these are roosters they will become chicken noodle soup :(

    Hi littlebittyfarm and Welcome to BYC!!!

    What a little cute bunch you have. I think that you will need to wait on the sex ID for a month or three, but why not guess? Just looking at the size/thickness of the last ones legs, I would guess boy. Can't see the first ones legs, though so who knows.

    I love to see photos of EE as they grow and change their feathers-- you just never know what you'll get so for sure you should post updates!

    #3 & #4 both look like you can already see combs?... too early to tell but the other two do not have any comb growth. Help me guess the gender. I am hoping for all pullets. Thanks!

    Wow. Really! I was told when I bought them they were "Ameraucanas" and I knew they were EE's....but Partridge Rock? Haha. It has muffs already. I had not seen muffs on a Partridge Rock. Maybe its half & half. Thanks!

    Haha I see the muffs now! I wasn't looking at muffs I just seen the colors of the feathers and the chipmunk look! I have 10 partridge rock gals that are a week old and look identical to this minus the muffs lol. My bad!

    I am still going with boy for #4 based on comb, slow feathering on the wing bows and stance along wth thick legs, and #3 also looks like a boy based on the red Feathers starting to come in on wings.
