    Chick #1 this one is supposed to be an olive egger, now feathers on feet, what you think?

    Bird #2 is an EE. This is supposed to be a pullet. Her comb is a little bigger than her sisters. Pullet or roo?

    Bird #3 is an EE. She is turning black and white and I think most black and white EE's are boys. Is she a pullet or roo?

    All are almost 5 weeks old.

    #2 is likely a cockerel, with that dark red coming in on the wing/shoulder area. #1 is probably an Easter Egger/Marans cross. You'll have to wait and see what color the eggs are, looks like a pullet. #3 looks like a pullet for now, but still a bit early to be sure.

    Thanks, I took a cockerel back and got the red one in its place but I think it is a cockerel too :( The saddle fethers are veey soft and not pointy yet but I am sure it is too young still. Time will tell :)
