    Started out with 5 lost one so far and have 4 left that made it to 8 and 10 weeks old. Any body care to help sex these guys? Also have 2 EE's that I would like to know what they were crossed with...

    Jazzy EE, 10 weeks old

    She's had a lot of health problem's starting out so we were very worried about her for a long time. Still worried but we love her each and every day we have her.

    Stripey, EE, 8 weeks old

    We picked up stripey because Jazzy was so sick we thought she would pass away so we picked up Stripy to replace Jazzy.

    Rose, RIR, 10 weeks old

    Rosie rose was my DH's pick... that being said I understand she's a RIR and RIR's are not the friendlyest breed but... UGH she is down right annoying... She is my least favorite bird.

    So who looks like a girl who looks like a boy and what on earth is mixed in with those EE's?

    Oh and are my EE's technically bearded? They look like they have baby fuz still there.

    I think all except the BR are pullets. The BR I am not sure [​IMG] sorry can't help more there. But those EE for certain look like girls to me. They have combs just like my 9/10 week old EE girl [​IMG] Good odds! Hopefully hehe.

    Jazzy - pullet
    Stripey - pullet (I do see a beard in one of her pictures, just like my EE girl. Will probably get more prominant as she ages.)
    Violet - Victor..? Not sure but I say boyo
    Rose - pullet

    No idea about what breeds are in your EE's [​IMG] love Jazzy's colors though!!

    I do too Morgan! She's so light complected. She's the gentlest of all the girls as well.

    I think your BR is a girl...I have 23 BR who are now 13 weeks old, and the roos are lighter, and their combs and wattles are very prominent...so I would say you have all ladies [​IMG]

    The BR is definitely a she. The comb and wattles aren't very pronounced ( a little pink, but not bad), the feathering is very dark and she has a nice dark stripe on her legs.
