    Your sex link has to be pullet because with this particular type of sex link all males are white, altho I don't remember what thread was it where somebody mentioned that there's a really tiny chance that a sex link night get the pullet plumage and vise versa I don't know if that is true tho.

    And about your EE I think she's a pullet if she was a he her comb would be a little bigger and redder by now. I have a 10 week old EE roo and you can tell him apart from the females already!

    Are you sure the last bird is a EE? Where did you get her at and how old was she?

    Quote:No, I am not sure...I was told she was an Americauna...but she does not have the beard of an Americauna. I got her at our local chicken farm and we got her when she was about 6 or 8 weeks old. We got 12 chicks on 4-24-10 that were 3 days old, we had to take one back that was a rooster and when we did we picked up 2 more RIR's and I got one EE, the next day went back and got 2 more "EE's"..
    I appreciate all of the help here!!
