Four out of fourteen Easter Egger chicks, six weeks old

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I was going to take photos of all these guys but well, pride, by that sin died the gods and all that jazz. This was the first shot I was able to get that they were sitting still: they'd escaped, and were happy about it, and were scoffing at my puny human attempts to pen their free spirits.

Anyway: I think I have two pullets (left and right), and two cockerels (center) in this picture, what do you think?

I really need to move these folks to new owners, but want to keep four or five pullets: any help in getting them sorted out would be much appreciated.

I can't see their feathers well enough to make a good determination from that picture. My best guess is that the two standing on the tub might be roos and the one sitting on the edge of the tub is a pullet, but I can't see the one that is down beside the tub at all. If you could get pictures of them each from the side so we can see their feathers  that would help a lot. smile

I have a husband, two young children, two dogs: Miri and Mara, two EE's: Friendly and Ellie, one Black Australorp: Licorice, one Barred Rock: Cloud, one Red Sexlink: Too Sexy, one Rhode Island Red: Cinnamon

Agree.....the one peeping its head around might be a pullet, but not positive.

Try reloading the page? sometimes pictures hosted on photobucket, which is sometimes slow on some systems.

the one in front(side view) is a pullet, one behind is might be a roo, but i dont see a red comb.
the red might be a roo
the one at the bottom looks like a pullet.

side shots(wings and back) and comb shots would help, even if you had to hold them

Stumpfarmer: That worked thanks! This happens a lot on BYS-now I know to try refreshing! :-)

I'm working on it- but I may also be working on a fantastic case of bronchitis, so it may be a bit.
