    I have two EEs, 7 weeks old. I've noted that Twiggy (the darker one) is looking like a different body shape than Camilla (orangey one)...tail is more upright and looks maybe longer. Comb is pinker but I can't tell about peas. I'm a first time chicken mom and I'd love some feedback. Unfortunately, if Twiggy is a roo, I'll have to find him a new home. :( I'd like to figure this out sooner than later because I'll want to get another chick to replace him before he has to go; I don't want Camilla to be lonely! See below for pics. Thanks for your help!

    Both are 100% pullets. Roo's wouldn't have that color.

    Both girls for sure! Your lighter EE looks exactly like my older EE hen.

    EEs are mutts - they're just different mixes, most likely. Both girls.

    Thanks for your help, everyone! Happy to know Twiggy can stay. She likes to sit on my shoulder. :)
