    I have three questionable chickies in my possession right now. I ordered 10 pullets from Ideal-EEs, BRs, and BOs. They are 10 weeks old. 2 of the EEs are looking like roosters right now with their fountainy tail feathers, and one of the BOs I'm almost positive is a roo. The BOs hackle feathers are sharp looking and flow downward; the EEs hackle feathers flow down but are more rounded.

    I'm sorry the quality is poor; it was raining and the chicks were not happy at all to have their pictures taken.

    Can you help me? [​IMG]

    I can only get two of your pictures up, but I will guess they are all pullets.

    I have never seen an ee cockerel in that particular color pattern.
