    Hello all! My pullets (hopefully) are all getting a bit older, and I have some much better pics now!!! I would love to know what you think as far as breed and gender! I tried to get pictures of combs, faces, legs, and backs. Thank you for all of your help in advance!

    First on is Esther...the only one that I really still have apprehensions about whether she is a she or a he! And s/he's also really quirky looking!

    Esther - 9 weeks old

    Next: Wilma - 9 weeks old (pretty sure a pullet)

    Next: Nugget - 7 weeks old (pretty sure a pullet)

    Last: Gladys - 11 weeks old (not 100%, but thinking pullet)

    Some joint pictures:

    Gladys and Esther. Do these ruffled feathers and stances indicate roos?

    Wilma and Nugget. Breeds? They are similar, but colors and shape are different.

    Thanks again everyone! I can't wait to hear what you think!!! [​IMG]

    I'm not sure on the first one... a Polish x maybe? But the second looks like a Red Star to me, and those feathers on Gladys makes me think she's a roo... [​IMG]

    hi, they are great-lookin' whether girls or boys.
    maybe Esther is part Polish? She's too cute for words!!!
    You must be incredibly patient to get those great photos!
    My girls decided some time ago that cameras are bad.
    ;(

    Oh, and girls do that face-off thing too. Pretty funny, huh?

    Gladys is a Roo, not sure what your first one is, the other named Wilma is a pullet.

    Pretty sure Wilma, Nugget, and Gladys Have EE in their background. Wilma and Nugget probably won't lay green/blue eggs because they don't have the green legs, but Gladys is most likely an EE...she looks just like mine. Esther might be part EE and part Polish (just a guess, I could be WAY off). I do think they are all girls though. [​IMG]

    Not true one bit! Leg color has absolutely nothing to do with egg color; How would you explain the slate legged Ameraucana? [​IMG]

    Esther may be part Polish, but there's no EE there. Wilma is probably half Sex-Link half EE, Nugget is probably also half Sex-Link or Production Red, half EE. Gladys is pure EE. (as if EE's are pure! [​IMG] )
