    He has pointed saddle feathers and the typical brick-red shoulder markings of an Easter-egger rooster. Saddle feathers show up at the base of the tail typically between 12 and 14 weeks old, though I had a young man whose saddles showed up at 7 weeks or so this year. Those feathers are a guarantee of a rooster, though, because hens will not get those feathers, especially young hens.

    Here is my boy at 12 weeks old. See the pointed feathers at the base of his tail? (As a side note, he does not have the red shoulder patches that most EE boys get, but he is still very much a boy. No pullet would ever have the red shoulder pattern of that person's bird, though.)

    If you can, post a picture. I'd be glad to help you determine whether you have pullets or not. :)

    Here is one of my EEs. Please tell me she is a she. Btw, they don't get picked on as much as they did. I haven't tried the peepers yet and I don't think I will now.

    I agree, she looks like a pullet. :)

    Oh, man, someone just posted 'Yeah, I was in denial about my EE roo, too.' to that person on Facebook! :lau I just can't believe that after 15 other people have said they're wrong, they can sit there and think that we all must be mistaken! If 15 people correct you on something, don't you think there must be something to what they're all saying? :lol:

    Thanks. They look like twins but only one was on the perch. The other one was on the ground and she wasn't getting mauled like they used to.
    Thanks for your quick replies. [​IMG] That's a relief.

    The house is obliterated, but the chicken coop is just fine.[​IMG]

    Don't pick on Too Fast.[​IMG]

    Too Fast has many interesting things to say that are of keen interest to the rest of us.

    Post #175 and post # 312, for instance.

    The rest of it is mostly mindless blathering, but those 2 bordered on somewhat interesting.

    Keep up the good work, Too Fast.[​IMG]

    Here ya go! It measures about 24 w, 18 h, 12 deep.
    With some effort, he should be able to make a MUCH better version.

    The framing around the top is a drip edge to keep rain out of the hopper.

    Send me a self-addressed stamped envelope of epic proportions and I'll mail you some of the fencing. $15 postage should do it.
