6 week old black and blue Easter Eggers roos or pullets?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I picked up 4 Easter Eggers yesterday. They were sold to me as straight run, but now I'm worried that they're mostly roos. They're all 6 weeks old
This is the biggest one. It's comb isn't as dark as the next two. They're all supposed to be the same age, but he is almost twice the size of the smallest one

These two have darker more pronounced combs and waddles that are starting to show

This is the smallest one that I'm most hopeful is a pullet. It's comb is really small and almost flat and still black.

We have 5 other chicks that are 3 weeks old and I was hoping to be able to put them together, but the 3 larger ones are too big for the 3 week olds. The smallest black one is getting along well with them though. If the others seem like they're roos, then I'm going to see if I can find someone to take them. And I know those bowls aren't the right feeders. We got them last night and I really did think they could all be together, but since we separated them we needed feeders and the feed store was closed, so those bowls were just something to hold them over. I got new feeders and water era this morning for them.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

:welcome

 

I see three cockerels and one pullet. 

 

for future reference, any bird under say 15ish weeks that has a red comb is male.
