    Please help me determine whether all of my pullets are pullets. I had them sexed before I purchased them but you never know.... I'm only keeping 3 so I'd like to make sure I pick pullets. They are 6 weeks old. Thanks!

    All look to be pullets to me. If I were you I would keep the wyandottes and EE, but that's just because I love those breeds haha.

    Thanks for the input! So far we love the EE. She has the best personality- very outgoing and friendly which made me think she might be a he. Also their tails are curled over a bit. That's why I needed some expert advise.

    The tails can be slightly curved as long as they are not very "flowy". EEs are also a very friendly breed naturally, at least mine are haha.

    None of your birds look male right now. (Yay!) I wouldn't worry about the EE either. I have one and she's super friendly and wants to be with people all the time.

    I agree. They all look like pullets! Our EE lays beautiful green eggs. Have fun!
