    So we have two that are 7 weeks old one is a Barred Rock and the other an EE. I was thinking they were both pullets until I heard some crowing this morning at 5 am. I went to garage where they are in brooder and it stopped, so wondering what your guys think? We are in City limits so I can't have a Rooster & will need to get rid of or both if they are [​IMG]

    Thanks, just hoping they are both girls! Hope maybe it was one of our neighbors chicks crowing & not mine they are around the same age as mine!

    Both pullets! Both EEs and BRs can be sexed by color. [​IMG]
