    I hatched out 3 bantam EE's. I think I know the sex on two of them, but not sure on the white one.

    8 1/2 weeks old in the shots where I'm holding the one in question:

    9 weeks old exactly in these photos.

    Roo on left? He acts like a Roo with the confirmed Roos in the tractor. pullet in middle facing facing backwards. White one in question on right

    Roo on right? The one most left is the same age, but from a different breeder. I have known this one was a Roo since it was a couple weeks old. It has a true Araucana father...its mother is unknown but it did come from a bantam egg.

    pullet on left. Perching is the Araucana mix Roo.

    I say pullet, and a very pretty one at that.

    The little white is a pullet also.. She's a pretty lil thing but that blue pullet really is a nice one. And I still haven't hatched a blue one for myself. LOL

    So the blue with white lacing does look like a Roo? I wasn't 100% sure on that one either.

    If anyone likes these cute chickies, I hatched them from jmhappycowboy!!!! They are relatively quiet and docile.

    Do you have a side view pic of the blue/white lacing? from looking at the head I would lean towards rooster but could better tell by seeing it from the side.

    A complete shot where I can see its tail also.

    White looks pullet. Need a better comb shot on the laced.

    The little white laced blue one looks like a pullet also. usually by that age the little roosters are getting their saddle feathers and their tail feathers are beginning to round over. I could be wrong but going by how previous ones have turned out I would say you have 3 lil pullets.
