    So I have 11 EE's, 11 SLW, 3 Golden Sex Links, 2 Brit reds, a White Crested Black Polish and an EE/Silkie cross. I was told that all the EE's and all the SLW's were female when I purchased them, they are all relatively the same age...maybe 1 week difference at the most.

    However, one of the EE's is VERY aggressive and territorial. Is there any chance that she is a he????

    These are the only pictures I could get of her...she doesn't like the camera

    She is a pullet. I have a number of pretty aggressive girls. They whop up on teh boys big time, and on each other.

    pullet is my vote. My EE cockerel had a lot of pinkness to his comb at around 3-4 weeks old. [​IMG] she is pretty, probably the "head honcho" of the group which explains the constant alpha ish behavior. I have a BR pullet who is bossy, and lucky she will be getting new sisters to boss around instead of always focusing on my EE girl lol!

    I have 2 EEs in my bunch, 1 pullet/1 roo (12 weeks old). They act the same, sometimes she is worse than he is. Obnoxious. It was pretty obvious by 7 weeks that the one was a boy.
