    Got 2 EE, this one has no muffs and I think it is a Roo, what do you think? 14 weeks tomorrow. Neither have a comb to speak of so looking at saddle feathers and leg size

    They both look like girls. EE cockerels develop dark red patches on their wings. Yours are both a nice, uniform colour.

    For those who say pullet did you zoom in on the saddle feathers of the smooth face? I hope you are right... Thanks for the feedback.

    Yeah. Rounded saddle feathers, typical of a hen vs pointy and long saddle feathers for males.
