    Here are my 5 EEs. They are 7.5 weeks old. I'm pretty sure the first one is a hen and the last one is definitely a rooster since he started crowing yesterday, but I'm not sure about the 3 in the middle.

    I would guess that maybe #2 is a boy as well.

    I was afraid of that. [​IMG] The white one and #2 are my favorite as far as personality goes...I don't know how to pick which one to keep!
     
  4. I say all pullets except the last one of course since none of them are showing the dark pink /red combs.

    #2 could go either way, but it does look like most of my late-blooming cockerels rather than a definite pullet. The last one is a definite cockerel and the rest look like pullets. Cute birds!
     
  6. I agree with PP. #2's legs look too skinny.

    But, I sure think Speckled Hen has a good eye.....

    They are all super cute! Nice photos, too!

    Chick 2 has a heavier body than the others (except for the rooster). It doesn't show so much in the photos, but he/she is a lot stockier than the other 3. My gut instinct says it's going to be a rooster, but I'm really really hoping it's not.

    Quote:I'm not sure what that color pattern is called. Since they're EEs I'm not sure it's a true color pattern. I love it too.
