    Hey, here are two of my 9 week old EE's. I got them and their 6 brothers/sisters on August 1st. One of the others is definitely a roo--he already has shiny green feathers, and is the "leader of the pack". I don't know about these 2 though Can anyone give an educated guess?


    There is Sylvia--or Sylvester if he is a roo: She/he is almost tail-less.

    Here is Marilyn, or Marlon---if he is a roo:

    The EE in the first 2 pics is a roo. Can't see Marilyn well enough.

    The EE in the first two pics is NOT a roo - Roosters cannot carry that color. [​IMG]

    I do not see any cockerels there except the red one in the background first photo and to the right background in the second photo.

    The silver laced one and the white one are pullets.

    THANKS! I hope you guys who voted PULLET are correct! Although they are all nice birds, I really would like "ladies". I will keep the red roo in the background, too. I have one new hampshire roo, but with a total of 24 "girls" [​IMG] , I want 2 roos......
