    Here are my EE. The darker chipmunk turned out to be the greyish/white one and the more orange/brown chipmunk turned out to be the blue/orange one. Can anyone tell the gender based on their colors. I can't believe the dark one turned so much lighter! Im VERY confused about what Ive read about color sexing...?? The latest pictures are current at 6-8 weeks. The grey/white one is about a week younger.

    A is on the left B is one the Right

    A is a rooster and B is a pullet. You have a pair. No doubt in my mind.

    fshingirl: Are you making the call because of the coloring on A? He/She is beautiful!! I have thought this was my only for sure pullet out of the group from the beginning!! Feathered fast and even, and so gentle.... Ive been curious lately since it is so colorful...

    Thanks for both of you for the input!

    In the picture of them on your table, the one on the right is certainly a male. The one on the left at this point, looks to be a female. I don't see any "smut" coming through, and the comb still looks small.

    Quote:Yes, and the small comb. Here is a photo of a pullet (from 2 years ago) of mine. I realize that they are not the exact same, but mine was definitely a hen.
