    This EE chick is 3 weeks and 2 days old. Any ideas on color and sex?

    Cute cute! But EE's are insanely hard to sex. I have one that was several months old that remained unsexed and then I started suspecting it was a roo. I was correct. Today I went home to find him having his way with one of my Buff Orpingtons. He's now over 6 months old.

    Hopefully someone well versed in EE sexing can come along and make a judgement call for you, because you took great pics.

    I think waiting a week and reposting with new pictures would really help.

    It looks quite rooish. But a week would make a huge difference with that comb.

    The color looks normal to me... i dont know what its called.

    I'm guessing cockerel; for one that young to be starting to turn red...plus, it's very wide. What a cutie! [​IMG]

    I have no idea of sex...but it looks like one of my "hawk girls" as far as coloring...

    I'd guess Roo, but it's still a guess this early.
