    16ish Week Easter Eggers- sexing thoughts?

    I hope you all are right! I had *terrible* luck with my first batch.. 6/8 crowed. Thanks for the feedback! I’ll come back to update after confirmation.

    16ish Week Easter Eggers- sexing thoughts?

    So I posted early on to ask for advice and the reviews were mixed and it was probably too early to tell. Now that they’re older... let’s try again! Of my 4 new “girls” do we think any of them are going to start crowing soon?

    Hello from “Cope’s Coop”!

    Hi all- I never formally introduced myself the first time I on this thread, but wanted to express how much this community has helped me through my first experiences as an adult chicken owner. We have been through predator attacks, crop blockages, finicky layers, and sexing debacles in my six...

    This forum was immensely helpful with sexing my young RIRs! I have four new Easter Eggers that I was told were about 4 weeks and likely hens.

    8-9 week RIR - sexing help!

    I bought 8 RIR pullets from TSC back at the end of March. So far, 6 have solid combs and a few even have the dark/glossy curved tail feathers coming in. I’m *hoping* that I really don’t have 6 roosters out of this batch, but based on reading previous threads, I’m worried it’s true. The two in...
