    I think the black one in the front of the last picture is a Rooster, but I am not positive.

    One of em has a very pronounced comb for its age, but I've decided that since EEs are really just mutts, there is no reall breed specific to guage yours against, so I think you'll have to wait for the crow. Im in the same boat as you. I hatched one and bought one at the store and they are so unbelievably different its really hard to predict if one is a boy of not.

    Actually EE's are not mutts. Amera-what's it's were developed from EE's so it's the Amera-whatever's that are really the mutts! [​IMG]

    I think the one in the front of that last pic is going to be a roo. EE's are really hard to tell until they crow or lay an egg

    The one closest to the camera in the last pic I think is a roo, the one in the middle are it's tail feathers as nonexistent as the other one, or do they look normal size compared to the other chicks? (if no or little tail feathers on the middle one I vote roo on that one too) That is just an observation from my batch of babies, don't know if there is any validity to it.
