Hi everyone,
I have 4 chicks that were vent sexed as pullets and are 4 weeks old. I'm pretty confident that the buff Orpington and silver laced Wyandotte appear to be pullets, but I'm unsure about the 2 Easter eggers....
Behavior wise they are very fearful, flighty and spastic. The last time we accidentally got a cockeral, he was brave, confident and friendly, nothing like these two. I'm just wondering because they were slow to get feathers (at the same rate as one another, but slower than the BO and SLW) but I don't see 3 rows of bumps on their

and barely have tails, and the coloring, but I don't see 3 rows of bumps on their combs yet....

Thanks, I hope they are pullets, but just something about them seems boyish....
It's hard to compare them to the other two as they are different breeds, and the EE are sort of random since they're technically mixed breeds....
