    Chickens are 13 weeks old First one is either a RIR or NH second on is suppose to be americauna, but I believe its an EE. Pleas tell me roo or pullet. I already have a crowing EE allready so I've got my fingers crossed for pullets.

    The reason I question the EE is because its comb isn't huge like the other 2 and it doesn't have any wattles. I'm new to EE so maybe they don't get wattles. But it just kindof looks like a rooster to me.

    my understanding of EE are that they are mixes, so they can have any comb...I have one roo with a pea comb, and one with a huge floppy one...my 3 EE pullets have pea combs...
    I believe that has something to do with indication of egg color? Am I right or terribly off!?

    Both cockerels. No mistaking those saddle feathers.... sorry.
    ETA: Also, black and white EE roosters commonly have that red bleed through on their wings.

    both are cockerels. Both have saddle feathers, and the EE has hackle feathers as well.
