    These are our 3 easter eggers. #3 (there are two pics of this one) seems to have quite a big comb compared to the other two. Also she (or he?) is quite a bit bigger than the other two.

    this last one the comb looks very light but it's a bit brighter than this. The flash went off so it was sorta washed out. The pic above was taken without flash.

    I think #1 and #3 are girls, #2 looks a little rooish. EE's are hard to tell sometimes. They look a little like a welsummer cross. Pretty birds. Where did u get them?

    Quote:hm... can you tell me what makes you think that? My kids want a roo but like an idiot I ordered all pullets, hoping for an accidental roo. Not sure why I didn't just order a couple since we aren't keeping them all but I didn't and now I don't really want to add one as I don't have a place to quarantine. I know it's early yet at 6 weeks and still might be hard to tell.

    I hope you're right! It wouldn't break my heart to have to rename Stella to Cosmo. [​IMG]

    #1 definate girl, #3 looks like a girl ive got....just little bigger pea comb, #2 looks like some saddle feathers back there. What ever they end up being there very pretty. Mine all came from a hatchery. Also #2s legs look thicker than the rest....which one is the biggest side by side?

    You can't see the saddle area on #2.

    Here's another pic of #2 with more of her body. It's blurry in the head though. These chickens never sit still.
