    These are our first Easter Egger chicks(there are 2) that one of our broody hens hatched. They are almost 4 weeks in the pictures. I've researched alot on here and I think I've decided that I have one roo and one pullet, but I would like some expert analysis. [​IMG] Correct me if I'm wrong, but the "three rows" on EE rooster combs are like an open pea pod and a pullet would just be the peas in the middle? From my judgement, I'm thinking out of the 8(a mix of breeds) that hatched, I may have 5 roos, sheesh! [​IMG] Also, what might their coloring be called, if it's anything other than "mutt"? [​IMG]

    This is the suspected pullet

    I think so too because when my little rooster was that age, he had HUGE chunky legs and theirs don't look that big.
