    I am pretty sure that #5 is a Roo but I am really hoping that #6 is a hen, she/he has a pink comb and legs and is extremely friendly.

    I'm not completely sure about the last one (#7 0but the others have the saddle feathers - they are roos. I think the last probably is also but again, it's hard to tell in the pic.

    He is beautiful and has been a good rooster but he is about to be replaced by a rooster who doesn't flog me everytime my back is turned. I now have 11 to choose from.

    So far #1 - 6 are with out a doubt roosters, #7 is hard to tell the gender of.

    Quote:That stinks! If I lived closer and had separate breeding pens, I'd love to have him anyway. I like my EEs. They are hardy and plucky and I adore green eggs. Having a nasty roo is a pain. I had a horrible (but gorgeous) Buff Orp. He was just doing his manly job but you sure couldn't turn your back on him for a second ... and he'd come at anyone even if their back wasn't turned.

    Yeah, the last one is a rooster, too.
