    So, I just picked up two hatchery chicks 12-week-old. Identified as EE(Ameraucana) pullets. What do you think? Are they both pullets [​IMG] Any chance they're actually Ameraucana rather than EEs?

    Their names are Creme & Brulee.

    I have an EE pullet that looks just like Creme and Brulee but does not have the long tail feathers. She is 5 months old and just started laying little green/blue eggs this week.

    Brulee's hackle feathers look pointy to me [​IMG] so I will say rooster. Not sure on the other one.

    Cute EEs. Does that mean you don't want the 2 I'm saving for you? I'm pretty sure I can tell girls from boys now but I want to be sure.

    Quote:I think I'm okay for chickens now. Just wasn't sure who had what anymore and these were already available and sexed by the hatchery.

    But if you get a baby from Marlon or Clark, we'll gladly take a grandchick once they're for sure pullets!

    Thanks everyone. Sounds like the answer is "pullets" to me. Woohoo! Finally got my EE pullets.
