I have 2 Easter eggers, one "should" be male and one "should" be female if the hatchery sexed correctly. The black/white one I'm sure is male, especially now that he has salmon feathers starting to come in on his shoulder bows (I believe that's the correct term) and he just looks like a cockerel - stance, attitude, puffy comb with all 3 rows showing since hatch, also very slow to feather. The supposed female was first to grow out her wings. Lately her comb is getting quite red... I thought I read that ee males couldn't have certain color patterns but I can't find it now. And she's just as big as the male - bigger than most my other same aged chicks. So help please on my EE's. Also, I received a pullet pack and thought this reddish brown one was a Rhode island red, but now I'm second guessing myself. "She" is getting black tips on her hackle feathers, and that comb has always been big and pushed to the side like a leghorn. She's the friendliest chick- demands to be picked up but won't hold still - climbs all over me peeping the whole time. Could she be a he? Any other breed she may be? I know production reds don't meet standards, but the black on her neck, she's not nearly as red as my adult prod RIR, and her comb just makes me wonder. The comb always looked just like that so its not redder or bigger - just growing proportionately. Waddles are newly aquired. :/ She and my supposed female ee were first to get big feathers by far. I've considered several breeds but nothing looks right to my underexperienced eye. I know someone out there will know for sure! Both will be seven weeks this weekend. Here are both ee's along with some other chicks. Male should be white/black one on right, female on left next to the NH. Male Mystery... Here she is when she was littler - I was hoping at this point she was a speckled sussex but now I doubt it.
