    I'm thinking that this one is the rooster and the other two are pullets. Thoughts?

    I'm thinking all look like pullets right now, the only one that could possibly be a cockerel is the white and buff one! :)
     
  3. It's so hard to tell with easter eggers. Isn't it.

    It would make me quite happy if I did have three girls. I was worried about how red the comb and wattles are in the third bird.

    Agreed - the one you suspect, OP, is displaying a classic pullet pattern.

    Ok, I'm pretty good on judging cockerels versus pullets on the breeds with single or rose combs but these Easter Eggers are driving me crazy. What are you all seeing to make the differentiation?
