breed help?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I purchased 6 chicks two Mondays ago. not real sure on age though I know they are all over a week and 3 days old. when we got them we were told there were 2 easter eggers 2 Rhode islands 1 silver laced Wyandotte and 1 lavender orpington. I still don't know the gender of some but now we are second guessing the Easter eggers actually being easter eggers. The top two pictures are the ones that are supposed to be EEs. The last picture has our Wyandotte Orrington and the 2 EEs. We think we have one roo and one pullet  in the 2 that are EEs. Are theses actually EEs or something else?

Better pictures of the 2

I think they are easter eggers, i used to have some and when they were chicks they looked exactly like that. They are too young to sex, but when they are around 1 month the pullets grow their tails first and the roos grow their comb first. Hope this helps :)

One is already getting its tail while the other is not also the wings are tilting differently I noticed hens are more rounded and straight back while the roos are more pointed and tilted down more

correct, the pullets grow their tails first and the roos grow their combs first with less tail.
