Should I suspect any of my sexed pullets of roosterism yet? (3weeks)

    I am pretty sure this will be a pullet... it's on the smaller side...

    Not totally sure on this one. She's curious, but not overly friendly... she's medium sized.

    This one is larger than most of them... very sweet/friendly. Will fly up onto my hand and arm, doesn't want to be put down. I suspect this one is a rooster, which will make me super sad since s/he is sooo sweet.

    Yellow/white one... she's on the smaller side... I think I can safely assume hen?

    Two RIRs--- one is quite a bit smaller than the other, and has the slightest dark mark on the back of her head, and a dot of eyeliner at the outside corner of each eye. The slightly larger one has no such markings. It has the "eyeliner" marking in th same spot, but it is so light colored as to be nearly unnoticeable. The smaller one is ultra friendly and curious... she always jumped up on my arm when she was in the brooder and made her way to my shoulder to play with/eat my hair.

    All are EE "pullets" with the exception of the RIRs... they're... well... RIRs... haha

    I guess what I am saying, is, is there any reason to doubt that any of my "girls" are girls?

    Thank you!

    I agree, girls! I have an EE whom I suspect is a roo and the comb and wattles are already red at that age.
