    All of my chicks hatched on 11/24, so they are around 4 weeks old.


    I ordered six EE pullets from Ideal, and I think two might be roosters.

    This one is so mean and HUGE.

    The roo-ish EE is on the left, and a Polish is on the right. I'm trying to figure out the gender of the polish. Is it a gold laced?

    This EE my daughter named Lola, and she loves it. Unfortunately it is larger than the others (though not as big as that first EE pictured above) and it is getting a concerning comb.

    None of the other EE's have a comb like that, not even the first roo suspect.


    I think this is a Sultan, not sure of the gender?

    Another Polish, I'm assuming White Crested Black. No idea what's up with those neck feathers poking out, other than the fact that my toddler had just finished holding it, haha.

    I'm not sure what coloring this one is? I ordered the crested special so maybe it isn't even a Polish? The crest is slicked back, like an ugly mullet. (In this picture it's harder to tell because it got wet.)

    Is that a comb starting or peck marks??


    And this little thing I named Penguin chick. It was so tiny when they arrived, but now it's finally growing a little. You can see the size comparison to a buff orp of the same age. Penguin chick has a little poof of a crest, but it was also wet in this picture. I had just refilled their water...

    It was one of the five in the crested special, but obviously not a Polish! On the phone they told me they were only shipping Polish during this season, I guess they still had some surprises to throw in.

    I've got EE's. Those two that you think might be roos---I vote roo also. That little one with the bright red comb is definitely a roo. I don't know about the others.

    I think Lola's a Lowel. I vote roo for the same ones you thought were.

    I see the V comb starting on Silver Bells and I agree that Lola is a Lowell. [​IMG]

    The coloring on the slicked-back mullet Polish looks like splash to me.
