    I have five EEs three of them I am sure are pullets but #2 and #3 I'm not so sure about. Any help is greatly appreciated! Also what's up with #1's tail? it's so funny looking ;)
    I tried to put the pictures in order but somehow they go a little messed up, if I need to post better pictures let me know and I will try to get some betters ones up. I noticed some of them have pea combs but the others I don't know what type of comb that is, anyone know?

    They are at that age were it could go either way. If you post again in a couple of weeks we could confirm their gender.

    Is no one willing to make a guess? I've seen people posting pictures of EEs much younger than 6 1/2 and gotten a lot of answers.

    So far they look pretty girly to me. As chick girl said another couple weeks will really tell the story

    I am willing to venture a guess, but keep in mind it is only a guess. My guess is that #2 and #3 are both girls. I am not seeing anything that says male to me at the moment. They both have pretty uniform coloring. #3 also seems to have the comb of a pullet (single row of peas vs. males that tend to have a triple row of peas running down the comb). #2's comb was washed out and a bit hard to see. Both combs are also still quite pale so that is also a good sign. That said, if things are still questionable in a couple weeks, post some good pictures taken from the side with them standing on the ground and a good front shot of their comb. Good luck!

    Thank you! I got my daughter to hold them for me because they run around so much it's almost impossible to take a decent picture of them other wise. I will post more pictures in two or three weeks, hopefully it will be easier to tell by then

    they all look female to me. If anyone starts getting a red comb in the next 2 months, they're male. If anyone crows period, they're male.
