    I ordered 10 EE pullets from Ideal, which are now 3.5 weeks old (and in their ugly stage [​IMG]). We received 19 birds, 8 of which were Australop roos. I think that one of the lorpies may be a pullet... what do you think? (please!)

    Here's a definite roo

    Maybe a pullet?

    Also... we're pretty sure this is a white EE, but she doesn't match the rest of our EEs we received. Any ideas?

    The first two are cockerels. The third one is an EE. Since they are not an actual breed, there's no standard and they can come in any color or pattern and lay anything from white to brown to green or pink eggs.
