Hi! Ok I'm hoping this will help others, I'm going to post pictures of my 4 week old Easter Eggers and let you guys debate over the genders. I will post pictures every week as an update so that others (not to mention myself) can hopefully learn something from it! Here you go:

1 and 3 look like definite cockerels, 4 and 5 may be pullets, and 2 is a tough guess for me. I'm going to guess cockerel at this point.

Thanks for your guesses! Number 1 is the sweetest little thing, I was really hoping I could keep her. But I can't keep a him. :(
Number 2 is very tough for me too. He/she was a very late bloomer and is still the smallest of the bunch. Will post more next week!

Here's another question for you all out there- about a week ago, number 5 opened its mouth and let out a "squawk" not a usual "peep" or "cluck" that I've been hearing. Is this a telltale sign of a cockerel, or have pullets been known to do this too at an early age?
