    My cousin recently give me five Easter egger and I'm new to the whole chicken thing. I've tried reading up one how to tell a hen from a roo, but in all honesty I'm more confused then ever. Can some one please share their opinion about what sex my chickens are? Any other tips would also IMG_20190626_192415357.jpg IMG_20190626_192912542.jpg IMG_20190626_192820207.jpg IMG_20190626_192830671.jpg IMG_20190626_192815860.jpg IMG_20190626_192818854.jpg IMG_20190626_192853673_BURST000_COVER_TOP.jpg IMG_20190626_192859592.jpg IMG_20190626_192853673_BURST001.jpg IMG_20190626_192431782.jpg IMG_20190626_192814422.jpg IMG_20190626_192755964.jpg IMG_20190626_192808695_HDR.jpg IMG_20190626_193110125.jpg IMG_20190626_192730840.jpg IMG_20190626_193114075.jpg IMG_20190626_192735772.jpg IMG_20190626_193053707.jpg IMG_20190626_192617681.jpg IMG_20190626_193105811.jpg IMG_20190626_192619758.jpg IMG_20190626_193357441.jpg IMG_20190626_192754093_BURST001.jpg IMG_20190626_192754093_BURST000_COVER_TOP.jpg IMG_20190626_193301753.jpg IMG_20190626_192739258.jpg IMG_20190626_193334098.jpg IMG_20190626_192742548.jpg IMG_20190626_192936238.jpg IMG_20190626_192937418.jpg IMG_20190626_192912542.jpg IMG_20190626_192610977_BURST001.jpg be appreciated sorry about all the pictures IMG_20190626_192415357.jpg IMG_20190626_192912542.jpg IMG_20190626_192820207.jpg IMG_20190626_192830671.jpg IMG_20190626_192815860.jpg IMG_20190626_192818854.jpg IMG_20190626_192853673_BURST000_COVER_TOP.jpg IMG_20190626_192859592.jpg IMG_20190626_192853673_BURST001.jpg IMG_20190626_192431782.jpg IMG_20190626_192820207.jpg IMG_20190626_192415357.jpg IMG_20190626_192415357.jpg IMG_20190626_192912542.jpg

    The grey with some brown and red one looks like a cockerel, all others look like pullets, maybe some more pic of the combs would definitely help identify what sex they are, especially the one that might be a cockerel (grey with brown/red)

    One way to tell, depending on how old they are.. hens combs stay small and do not turn red until after the roosters. The saddle feathers of the rooster will be pointed, hen rounded. Two of these Ameraucana are rooster, one (darker) is a hen about 5-6 months. EE and Ameraucana tend to start laying eggs later than the average chicken. IMG_1565.JPG

    how old are your chickens?

    I see two possible cockerels... but I think I also have pic overload.

    Ditto. It's hard to tell from these pics. They're all flushed from being caught and or blurry and running around. The white one is a pullet. The red white and blue one in the last picture with the semi Columbian hackles is a cockerel. The blue and red one looks like it as well. But I can't tell a thing from these pictures

    Not sure on their exact age...I've had em about a month. When I got em they had all their feathers. My cousin did say they might not lay eggs till next year
