Help Sexing a six (6) week old easter Egger... Think she's a he :-/

post #1 of 5

EDIT: SIX WEEKS not 1 week.


Hello! I'm new to chicken raising and am afraid one of my Little hens is actually rooster! I got them from a farm store, where of course they're sold seed, but am aware they make mistakes. I have two buffs and two easter Eggers. The buffs and the one Egger are definitely hens... The fourth looks and acts as if shes actually a he.

Any help would be much appreciated! I plan to take her back in shortly if we can't determine on our own. We'll have to give our lucy up if shes a he as our neighborhood won't allow roosters.

Sorry the photos arent the best- was holding my nine month old at the same time smile.png she's the one in the front.

The pictures didn't post, but at one week old they are too young to sex.

Thanks! I'll correct - they're six weeks. *autocorrect*

I'll try posting photos again too

At 6 weeks it should be easier! You may need more posts before you are allowed to upload photos. At one point it was 10, not sure what it is now.
