    I have four EE's the first one is starting to honk or CROW!!!!!!!!!! They are all suppose to be pullets but the honking one started mounting my other pullet this morning. THE TOP ONE IS THE HONKING HUMPING ONE! The other three are two weeks younger than the top one do they look like roosters or hens?

    The first one is about 8 or 9 weeks old The rest are about 6or7 Not sure what kind the 2,3,or4th are.. When they were little they had the markings like my EE's but now they look different than the rest. I got them from tractor supply because I had some deaths by mail from My Pet Chicken.

    The third looks like a gold laced wyandotte pullet. I agree that the sedond looks like a speckled sussex. Don't know the 4th though
