    We're new to chickens and our chicks are almost 5 weeks old and are from McMurray Hatchery - they're all supposed to be pullets but already we believe the EE is a roo. Figured I'd post the pics and see what you all think.

    I know it's early to really know for certain but I appreciate your opinions/guesses/feedback. Thanks!

    They all look pretty much like you think they are !!! I am not sure about Ruby. ??? Pumpkin does look like a boy.

    Thanks The Banthams for your feedback. I'm going to try to post another picture of Ruby. She's hard to photograph, they all move so quickly. She certainly doesn't seem to act like a rooster at this point, not like Pumpkin does anyway.

    Is this photo any better? Pullet or Roo? Too soon to tell (almost 5 weeks old) - RIR but could possibly be a Red Star.
    Thanks again!
