    1st one is definitely a roo and the 2nd one does look like a girl. I'm not sure on the 3rd one.

    They are Easter Eggers...aka EE's.

    What is it about #1 & #3 that makes you guys think they are he's? I'm just curious.

    Quote:Even in a 7 week old chick? I didn't think roos got their tail feathers until later. But I'm not sure. I could be remembering wrong. [​IMG]

    The pink in the combs. Nothing about feathers or anything else.

    Females will not get pink until right before they start to lay.

    I don't know, they look pretty girly to me. I had a hen who got a red comb at 7 weeks.
     
  10. #1/2 pics looks like a boy to me, but the others looks look like girls to me too.
