    Ok, so I've gong through hundereds (literally) of pictures on here and I still have no idea what these are. I wish they came with boy/girl tags on them, oh well! Thanks so much in advance! I love having a place like BYC to go to for help!!

    This is Wander, a 6 week old EE.

    My guesses for the first three EE's (pictures of the combs MAY help) would be that you have two cockerels. The one in the middle (Ora) is questionable, but I think Ora is a pullet. I do not know about the others.

    Wander and Lucille are DEFINITELY boys. Ora looks like a girl to me. The other 2 I'm not sure, but I'm leaning toward both girls on those. [​IMG]

    Wander is REALLY pretty! If he were mine, I'd consider keeping him even though I already have too many roos!

    ?? Evelyn was the only one that looked like it could be a roo to me! (can't see face well) What is making the rest of y'all think they are mostly roo's. I must be missing something?? They look like pullets to me. Where did you get them?
