    I have two that hatched on March 20th - about 6 weeks old. They are both EE types. Any guesses to pullet or roo?
    Quaker is black and white and a little larger than the plain white. Has yellowish feet.

    Pineapple is white one with very little comb (like her mother) and green feet. Sorry about the smudge on her feathers - she did that when we were out enjoying a little sun.

    my best guess, the top one looks like a delaware and maybe a hen.

    the other one, not sure

    That white one with the beard, the bottom photo, looks very much like my white EE.

    How old are those birds? A lot older than six weeks!!! Born in March?

    Birds combs can vary... some hens have larger combs. I always wait for the feathering to prove the sex.

    They do look older that six weeks - but they did hatched on March 20th. They they both look very similiar to their mothers when they were chicks. Their father is quite large (thats him in our avatar). We had to wait til they were quite a bit older to tell if they were roo or pullet. Quess we'll have to do the same with these two.
