    EE 16 weeks old...single thick pea row that is curvy and raised up a bit [​IMG] We really are not 100 percent sure on this one! The others I am almost positive are hens...well...not the grey one with four legs [​IMG]

    I added a poll...not sure how that works but will try! I will post pics of the other seven we have because I am 90 percent sure the rest are hens...at least one of them are, we have been getting eggs!

    Thanks for the help and feedback!

    He is a cockerel, and he is going to be a beauty when he matures.

    He's a rooster, at least the left half is lol.
    Seriously, I'm looking at those pics and thinking he's a, a, what do you call it.....where two sperm fertilized or something like that. Sorry, chemo-brain has taken over and I can't always think of my words! The sides don't match up at all, and that's not normal for a chicken. Sometimes both halves are the same gender, sometimes they're each one gender. The color I can see from the right side looks rooish, but I can't clearly see hackle/saddle feathers like I can on the left side. This is so cool! Can you get a good, clear pic of each side of him? I sure hope someone comes on who remembers what this is called.......

    Hi donrae,

    Here are two sides of "him" LOL. You would think at 16 weeks it would be easy to tell, but TwoTone seems to be really two different halfs of bird, hence the name Two Tone (it started as Tomy Tutone [​IMG] )

    right side:

    Now the left side:

    Looks like I will have to correct my signature line....8 darling chickens, one rooster so far, seven hens.

    He looks very cool. His name fits him good.

    I'm fairly new at this, but, I say "rooster". Look in your first picture, at the "pimple" on the leg. I think you'll see a spur develop there soon. I own four EE's and they are certainly special birds.

    Thanks for the pics! He does look male on both sides, I don't know what the name is for it. Half male and half female is gynandromorphy, not sure what both male is. A few years ago someone on here had a rooster that was frizzled on one side, smooth feathered on one side, with the sides also being different colors if I recall. Sometimes they can have different colored legs, or a muff/beard only on one side, etc. He's quite the looker, are you able to keep a rooster?

    Hens can get spurs too.
