    I have two EE's--Tweety and Ellie. Tweety I always thought was a girl, but her comb has reddened a lot lately and it has me second guessing myself. Ellie...I just don't know. She's different than Tweety, her comb is less red, but it is bigger. Her legs are bigger. Her body is bigger. But I can't find anything different in their feathering than their colors. Sometimes I look at her and think hen and other times I think roo. She started out being the dominate chicken, but one of my Wellies has taken the top position. They came from a feed store and are supposed to be pullets. They are 7 weeks.

    Hope these pics are helpful. Thank you BYC!

    Really??? [​IMG] We can't keep roosters and the flock gets along so incredibly well, I would hate to have to give any of them up. Plus my kids would be devastated. They love our EE's. Our Wellies are nice chickens, but our EE's are super friendly and have such fantastic personalities.
