    So I got 2 EE's who are 9 and 10 weeks old. I was told girls when I got them but when I posted a few weeks ago was told roo's. Being in denial I refused to believe. Now they are a few weeks older and am still questioning them. Here are pics I took this morning. These 2 puff up those neck feathers like the crazy dino's on Jurassic Park. The 9wk old one still has hardly any tail feathers

    EE 10wks. When this one went outside for the first time yesterday it puffed up the neck and looked like one of those dino's with the neck flaps and chased everyone 5x's its size around

    I'm going to guess pullets.. They are 9 weeks old, and those combs are pretty small...

    EE males commonly have red in their wings and shoulders.

    Really couldn't tell you for sure, but I think they may be girls.
