    So, 14 weeks ago my hubby surprised me with 6 wonderful EE pullets from the pullet bin. Well, I've been in denial for weeks now that my 2nd favorite is actually a roo. Polka is a good "boy", "he" is sooooooo pretty, and "he" is such a lover. So, I guess I need someone to really force me into acceptance.............. he's a roo, isn't he??? [​IMG] Oh, and any guesses on my silkie Butterfinger? I know the pics aren't the best, "she" is about 12 weeks old. Thanks!

    Uh...... totally no um.....no roosters? Um, for reals?

    Did it work? [​IMG]

    Um, and in a totally unrelated subject, if you post pictures of roosters on Craigslist, it really helps re-home them.

    The EE is definitely a boy. Sorry. Can't help you with the silkies, I don't do silkies.

    Definitely a boy, but if you can keep roos, you should hang onto him. There are a thousand reasons to keep a roo, and EE roos are some of the nicest. If he's a fave, he's certainly a good, sweet boy, so keep him! Some folks have kept illegal boys [​IMG]

    I think the Silkie is looking like a pullet so far.
