Humor me - Sexing 10 day old Easter Egger

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

First time poster, long time reader ;)

 

I got our chicks last Tuesday, the 3rd (from MPC), some shown herel and all doing great.

 

I grew up with chickens but it's been far long enough that I don't remember nuances of raising chicks. Nonetheless, I am thoroughly enjoying reliving the experience.

 

Anyhoo, I have two EE's (no experience with EE) in our mix. The size & stature difference is NUTS and truly that's all that intrigues me! I intend to keep it regardless but take a look....

 

 

Center bird (second from left) in question, same day EE pullet to the right

 

 

 

Bird on the right; for size value when it stands tall it will peck at the top waterer jar (pictured above) that is 1" raised

 

Close up:

 

Behavior is classic cocky to me, aloof, watchful, quiet,  - but I don't know this breed OR even how chickens are bred to behave these days.

 

 

 

Granted I;m going off my Grandfathers words of wisdom being -- "I don't know what chicken you got but if it acts like a dog it's a hen and if it acts like a cat it's a roo. If it acts like a dog and then starts talking, get rid of it." hahaha

 

 

So weigh in & enjoy. I will add pics as Tempe/Timmy grows. Thanks all!
