    They are 8 and a half weeks now. I have to find new homes for the roos. I think I will keep one.They are all so sweet and good with my three boys who love to pick them up pet them. The boys are very good with them they love to give them treats. so here they are my boys named them so their names are a little weird.

    6. your going to a new home because you are a boy (that is its name). my four year old also named his OEGB big red chicken even though she is the smallest chicken that we have.

    Usually... ones that are a buff or a reddish brown partridge color are girls. I would give it another 2 weeks. It is really hard with EE's to tell.

    2 and 3 are roos the rest I would wait awhile on unless you have seen very rooish behavior, separate from group, watching sky while others eat, calling or herding everyone else into coop at night, etc,.
