    These aren't that great as Yogurt has a mind of his/her own most of the time.

    He/she is 5.5 weeks old. Never really tucks the head in, does drop it down if something flies over or nearby, doesn't automatically extend it.
    thanks for any ideas. Sorry I don't have any leg shots, this was as much as Yogurt was going to handle at that moment, and I shot them with my cell phone.

    From what I can see, it looks like the comb is narrow and only has one row of "peas", so I would guess pullet. I'm still pretty new at this myself though.

    I have an almost 6 week old EE roo. I pretty much knew he was a roo several weeks ago because he was larger than the other 8 EE's I have. Well, he proved to me just the other day that he is going to be a roo..........he's starting to crow! It is a pitiful attempt but so darned cute we had to clap and praise him. His name is "Mister" and he is very personable but his pea comb is not large and he does not have any wattles starting yet like my Orp roo and Welsummer roo of the same age.
    The photos you show look a lot like my EE pullets but I am no expert.[​IMG]
