Could this Easter Egger be a rooster?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello!
I have two Easter Eggers that are supposed to be pullets but I'm thinking one is starting to look like a roo. I could sure use some other opinions.




Here they are when I first got them. I feel the top one is about 1 week old here and the bottom one is younger (suspect)

The next few images are what they look like now, 3 weeks later. The bottom one is looking quite a bit lighter and its comb seems more prominent. I also attached a close up of the comb. It also doesn't have much of a tail.







These are only my 4th EEs and the other two were hens and had a lot more brown. Let me know what you think. All EE pictures are welcome!!!

Yes, the second one does look to be a cockerel. If you look at the comb it has 3 rows of bumps while the pullet chick has one. In most cases the 3 rows indicate male.

That's what I was afraid of. hit.gif

Thanks for the speedy response! I will post weekly pictures of them until I'm 100% sure it's a roo.
