    Hello all. I posted pictures of my son's EE chicks several weeks ago for a gender ID. They were too young then to tell much, so I am hoping now that they are 9 weeks old (approximately) you experts can tell us if at least 1 is a pullet. We were told they were both pullets but I'm thinking they are both roos. I appreciate your comments! [​IMG]

    Yes, first one is totally a pullet. Second on could go either way. I'm leaning toward roo, but I'm not positive. I love the colors on #2 either way. [​IMG]

    # 2 looks like a young roo to me. Looks like the tail feathers are starting to curl under, just as mine did. Has the same body type as my roo did, although it's comb is not as large and red as mine.

    Thanks everyone for your comments [​IMG] You've given me hope that at least 1 is a pullet. The second one I'm thinking roo because of his size, posture, and very large chicken feet (LOL), but since you have different opinions, I'm still hoping for a girl! I don't want a roo but we've grown attached to him and it would be awfully hard to give him away.
