    X 2 on Kelsie's suggestion -- I'd take a nice head shot and a full body shot from the side that shows the entire bird (legs included) for each bird and start a thread over there that includes their ages (age has a lot to do with "reading" certain gender characteristics)

    Yes, post better photos. You live with them and can see them from every angle. We can only see a tiny bit of them with no definition.

    Hi! Welcome To BYC ( Im new too) but can you tell if they have spur bumps on their legs yet? one EEs started showing them about 2 weeks ago ( and i think i see them on another now . ( mine are almost 12 weeks to date ) . they should look more round than the other "scales" on their legs, and be located just to the back inside. I know i have read some place that some hens get them too, but it clued us in on which ones to watch for further development of roo signs . hope this is helpful . :)
