I 75% sure these two are males, but i've had surprises these days.They are pretty much look alike and do seem pretty active.

Let me know what you think :)

This is my easter egger chick and not sure if it is a male or female. Very timid

Did you post these on the "Easter eggedr sexing tips and tricks" thread? They've got a lot of experts on the who can answer that, but to me they both look like males

1 splash silkie rooster, 1 splash silkie hen, 1 blue silkie hen, 2 EE hens, RIR, buff orpington, blue orpington, barred rock, SLW, a few silkie/EE mixes

Btw, the names Andrew, if my username doesn't make sense...

I did not, Thank you! :) I checked their wattles this morning again, and I think the top two are males. Still not sure on my other one.

If the hen was barred, then you have known from hatch that those two are males. A barred hen can only pass her barring gene to her male chicks.
