    I feel like every day I am questioning the gender of my "ladies." They are all 11 weeks today. Also, the other pullet of the same breed looks way different. Much smaller, different tail and neck feathers and cheek puffs. And they were sold to me as Red Crosses
    Not so sure FFandH had a clue...

    If they are Red Crosses then doesn't that indicate that they are mixed breed and will likely have different appearances? Cheek puffs tells me one is crossed with EE. Green legs are another clue. By 11 weeks my male birds usually have significant comb and wattle development. The level of pinkness on that one bird doesn't set off any alarms for me. My 100% certainly female Salmon Faverolles and Speckled Sussexes of the same age have the same look to their combs.

    looks like a classic Easter Egger to me! (they are a mixed breed with a blue egg gene so they come in all colors! My avatar is an Easter Egger)

    Hi, welcome to BYC! :frow

    I agree the very fact they are cross mean they should look exactly the same. :old

    Also think they look like EE pullets. :) :fl
