I hatched 5 EE's from Ebay and was hoping to have as few roosters as possible. These chicks were born July 22. Watching the feathers to tell the sexing, the two I thought were boys started crowing in late September. They grew tail feathers 2 weeks later than the others and had different feathers on the wings. Over the course of October a chicken I thought to be head hen started developing rooster looks, but has yet to crow. When she was a baby she did pull out all of the dominate roosters tail feathers and did chase the yellow rooster and jump on it's back. She/he is also the friendliest and whistles at me and will jump onto my shoulder. I'm still hoping for her to be a hen. She was identical to her sister when she was born and only changed this past month, further making me think she is a boy. However, the head rooster likes her and not the other known EE male. I have never seen her fight with anybody since the rooster feather pulling as a chick. Also, when I am greeted and followed it is usually by the known roosters and her. She prefers to sleep on the floor with a cluster of silkies instead of with all the other EE's. I tried getting her used to the perch but I just gave up after several days. She was my first of this hatch and looked identical to her sister, I named her Thing 1 and her sister Thing 2. They both came from the same color greenish khaki eggs. Here is her face, she does have a red comb where the hens do not, but not as developed as the other Roosters. She is sitting in front of her dull feathered sister and behind a black silkie. Thanks for any input. I plan on keeping her regardless, but if she is a he I will have to buy many hatched hens to improve my gender ratio. If she is male, my home hatching of EE's eggs ended up being 60% male. I'm zoned farming, so crowing is not a problem and neither is shortage of land to free range on. I just wanted more hens to lay colored eggs than just 2 of them.
