    A month ago I purchased 3 Easter eggers to add to my other two breeds eventually. Right now I am having trouble telling which is a cockreel and which are pullets. Theyellow one seems to be the only one growing a crown . Here is a pic. [​IMG]

    Where did the birds come from? None of them have a classic hatchery EE look. The middle bird in the first pic looks more like a red sex link, the black bird looks like a silkie mix, and the gold and black bird looks like a buff x black something.

    We really need better pictures to help id. Profile shots, in natural lighting, of the bird standing naturally is best.

    From the looks of the combs, I'm thinking the black bird is a cockerel, but again all the above is just guesswork pending better pics.

    Okay I will do my best. They hate the camera . The seller told me they we're a barnyard mix of Easter eggers. But marshmallow is the only one with a comb and the other two have more like a bump rather than a comb.
