    What does you experts think, what gender are these EE's? 5 months old.

    Yes they are EE's, my experience is that EE roosters start crowing the earliest of any of my birds. Normally by 14 weeks, but definitely by 18 weeks. They also are about the most lovely roosters ever! If you had an EE rooster, you would absolutely know it by 5 months. So I think you can feel confident that they are hens. Also you probably aren't too far out from getting eggs. Ours have started laying between 5-6 months max. So if you don't have next boxes set up, you might want to do that.

    I like girls.[​IMG] They are kind of small but I guess they don't really get too big, no bigger than my 3 month old Barred Rock right now.[​IMG]
