    Some of the folks (like me) that are saying that the EEs are roos may be sayin' that because mixed breed roos frequently have a red leakage on their wings. This is where some red colored feathers show up on an otherwise solid light-colored wing. These guys both look like they have red colored feathers on their wings=roo.
