    Can a 2 week old chick that is a hen have little spur buds already? I am not sure if this EE is a hen because it is one of the chicks that Dixie hatched. Don't most EE hens have chipmunk patterns? She does and she has barring too. I will get an updated pic of the chick tomorrow.

    Yes, both sexes have those, Maxx. The rooster won't even develop real spurs for months.

    Quote:Ok good to know. She (hopefully) and her sister (hopefully) are the only 2 possible girls we have. Why do pea combs have to be so hard to sex???!!! [​IMG] 6 chicks from our first hatch and 4 of them have to be roos. [​IMG] We are going to keep the Barred EE that hatched though. [​IMG]
