    I bought a "pullet" last week that I'm pretty sure is a cockerel. The seller is insisting it's a hen. She asked for pictures of the neck feathers and says they look like hen feathers. They look more like roo feathers to me. So I took pics of my other two EE's, one is male and one is female, and I'm curious. Which of these look male and which look female to you?[​IMG]

    Fun a game! Guess the rooster! [​IMG]

    I'd say your rooster is number 2.

    I would suggest posting the whole picture of the bird in question! :)

    Numbers 1 and definitely 3 are your pullets. 2 is the roo.

    Number one is deceptive because the black looks pointy, but look closer at the red around the black on each feather and you will see a round shape. Compare with #2, the definitive male, and you'll see the difference.

    BUT, full body pics would clear it up.

    I am on my phone, so the pictures are tiny....... but , I think #1 is also a rooster.

    #3 is 100% pullet, no eorries there!

    Seeing full body shots, you have two roosters. #1 and #2. Sorry.

    Agree. #1 is looking very much like a male in the full body pics.
