    Hello! Up until now, I've thought Peanut, my 17-week old EE, was a roo. After seeing his back feathers side-by-side my girliest pullet, I'm now wondering if I was wrong. What do you guys think? Thanks for your input!

    I only have one EE so I'm far, far from an expert. And my girl's feathers confused me too. But I think yours is a pullet. Let's see what the experts say... [​IMG]

    EEs are SO tough to gauge their sex sometimes!! But I think Peanut is a pullet.

    I say pullet too. I would think there would be much more comb development on a 17 week old rooster. EE's are hard to tell though. I don't see any saddle feathers either.

    Awe, thanks!

    Thanks so much for all of your responses. This is kind of bittersweet, because I was really looking forward to having a roo look after my flock. But now I'll have extra eggs!​
