    These two are bossy and fresh. The lighter one I'm suspecting is a Roo, the darker a hen. Any thoughts? In the last picture you can see my 3 w/o GLW Roo (I got him sexed on purpose cause I wanted a Roo!)

    Hard to say with that lighting. Can you get pics that arn't under the heatlamp? THe first things that give away gender in EEs is the color of the body/wings.

    And this is the one I believe is a hen. I absolutely love her "eyeliner"

    My eldest EE is a total bully. Grrrr... She taught my Wyandotte her crazy feather picking ways.

    Your EE looks like a boy though.

    I'd say you have a cockerel and a pullet.
