    Hello! So my chicks are older now, and I have figured out the sex on most of them. My 5 B.O.s are all cockerels. 2 barred rock are cockerel, one is a pullet. My EEs have me still wondering. One for sure is a cockerel, no doubt. Out of the other 4 EEs, I think its 2/2, but would love if you would take a look to help confirm. Thanks!

    They all look like pullets, however a head pic (comb/wattle) would make it "easier"

    #1. I've been told multiple times that this one is a pullet based on colors, but it's getting a green tail feather. The one to the left with its head down looks identical but that one I don't see any green in the tail.

    #2. I guess I didn't get a face shot of the gold headed one. This one is hubby's favorite.

    Easter eggers are always the tricky ones, usually you just have to wait until they start crowing. In saying that ive raised them for a while now and ill give you my best guesses.

    #1: Roo
    #2: Hard to tell but I'll say pullet
    #3: Pullet
