As I mentioned before, these guys are 4 weeks old. Too young to really accurately sex them yet but I wanted to get their first/young pics out there for eventual comparison : )
Thanks to @FVRM for suggesting I do this in two groups of pics (4 and 5).
1, 2, & 3 look like pullets so far.
Pretty sure 4 is a cockerel.post #10733 of 117484/7/16 at 9:30pmpost #10734 of 117484/7/16 at 11:09pmpost #10735 of 117484/8/16 at 6:31am@Wishing4Wings and @msazeeta
Thanks so much! I agree with both of you, unfortunately. I suspected only four looked like pullets. Boo. : (
I would offer them up as free to whomever but I have a sneaking suspicion that everyone in this board has about the same need for a free rooster as I do...which is not at all! LOLpost #10736 of 117484/8/16 at 2:56pm
*I already know which of my chicks are cockerels*
Just wanted to show all the first time Easter Egger owners some good girl versus boy Easter Egger pics. Plus, the fight sequence is pretty funny.
My group of 8 week old chicks. I knew their genders by about 4 weeks old. The barred chick was a black sexlink Easter Egger, so I knew his gender at hatch. The two darker red chicks are cockerels. The two that are golden/yellow are pullets.
Here they are, just hanging out, enjoying some group preening.
My dominant female chick decides to move to the front of the coop. Tweet is likely going to be very large, golden yellow hen.
Everybody followed Tweety, except for these two.
The cockerel stare down. Also notice the patchy deep red coloring. That coloring started showing at 3 to 4 weeks old, making it clear that these were boys.
The dominant male comes over to referee.
When that didn't work, Tweety came over and pecked each of the boys soundly on the head to tell them to knock it off. Tweety is the boss.
See how both pullets are lacking the dark red patches. Their coloring is even and uniform across their body.post #10737 of 117484/8/16 at 4:26pmpost #10738 of 117484/8/16 at 4:38pmQuote:
Is that the same bird? How old was it in the pics? Gives people hope for a luxurious beard growing in with not much to start with.
It's red patches on the wings that you see in males. This looks like a pullet to me.post #10739 of 117484/8/16 at 4:54pmQuote:Originally Posted by Wishing4WingsQuote:Is that the same bird? How old was it in the pics? Gives people hope for a luxurious beard growing in with not much to start with.

Yes, same bird different day.. I'd have to go through a whole lot of pics to figure out age. Im guessing 8-10 weeks. There were red patches on the wings also, just not as dark or severe as on the breast area. Trying to learn all I can. We just got 3 chicks from the same pair!post #10740 of 117484/8/16 at 5:03pm
Hmm, tough call. Do you have any pics of the red shoulders? I still think it was a pullet, but would need to see a profile pick. By 8-10 weeks, a cockerel would have a red, not pink, comb.
