    Hi all. I bought two EE's this weekend (well I was told they are EE's) because I am still a newbie, I would appreciate it if you could help me tell what sex they are? The dark one is only 3 weeks and the lighter one 4 weeks, here are some photo's.

    Really hoping for pullets! [​IMG] But after reading a few threads I have a lot of doubts ...

    I don't see enough concentrated red on the shoulders or alarming comb color to say the light one is male, at this point. The dark one does look female as of now.

    Both look like pullets for now, but they're too young to be sure.
