    I have some 6 week bantam easter eggers and trying to sex them so I am calling all easter egger experts out there to chime in [​IMG]

    here are the obvious roos. their combs are bigger and red and the beige one crowed. We have suspected these 2 were roos from week 2 because they are always play-fighting each other.

    this is the one that crowed last night.

    I am hoping the 3 in front are hens. They have more gentle personalities and their coloring is not as flashy.

    here they are as a group.

    I have to say, those are some beautiful birds! I think those are probably hens, because they aren't devolving a comb as fast as the others. Congrats on those adorable and beautiful chicks. [​IMG]

    I love the 3rd pic, it looks like the girls are posing in front of the boys. And they look so animated in the last one! I think you are correct on your guesses - 3 hens for sure but the Eagle looking one always turns her head away from the camera. [​IMG]

    At this point it does look like the 3 are girls.

    thanks for taking a look.

    @XxKiki_Bantam_BreederxX - thanks, i hope at least the 3 are hens. they seem to have the mellowist personalities

    @bantamsrmyfav and @matt i hope the 3 are hens... the one that looks like a bald eagle is the most shy of the bunch...

    @rebel-rousing-at-night thanks !!

    so there is one with darker feathers and a white head...he/she seems to be hiding in the most of the pics but i am starting to suspect that it is a roo. it is starting to become more playful and the comb is getting bigger [​IMG]
