    I think the first one is an ee. I don't know about the second or third. I believ the first 2 are pullets and the last one is a roo.
    eta...Are they all the same age? That might change my roo hen guess.

    Edited because I just read that they're only 7 weeks old... wondering about that SLW's sex now. That comb is mighty red for such a young age. [​IMG]
