    Just got these 3 month old Easter Eggers today. The breeder was not there so he had his brother who didn't know much about chickens help me. Any clue if they are pullets or cockerels? Notice, the red & white one has a much more red comb and also 3 little rows on the comb the other just has a smaller, paler rose comb. Thanks.

    You have one cockerel and one pullet. The red is the cockerel.

    Yes indeed. Notice the tails. The cockerel's tail is much higher than the pullet's. Are these your 1st chickens?
