    The EE does look roo-ish. Hard to tell yet with the SLW. Might be a pullet yet!

    there about 10 wks.the reason i'm thinking the SLW is a roo is because of how long his tail feathers are compared to the GLW beside him in the 1st pic

    I am thinking that you SLW is a pullet. Here is a pic of my SLW Roo at 10 1/2 weeks. It was very hot so his tail is tucked in.

    Sure looks like your EE is a rooster~ Here is a picture of my EE x Blue Wyandotte rooster taken at 9 weeks old for comparison. Yours is going to be beautiful! [​IMG] And your SLW is definately a pullet! [​IMG]

    i bought him out of the straight run at Family Farm and Home.He seemed real cocky compared to the rest so i bought him in hopes of a roo with some character.he's seemed roo-ish from day 1 [​IMG]

    Dunno on the other one, the tail leads me to believe it's also a boy...

    EE is definitely a roo, SLW could be both. If pressed, I would say you have two roos.
